It was agreed at the Annual Fixture Meeting that the following clubs were approved as “Twinned Clubs” for the 2017-18 Season.
Senior: FAIRFIELD O.G. (Men’s Div. 1) & Junior: WALLASEY F.O.B. (Men’s Div. 1)
Senior: LIVERPOOL (Men’s Div. 1) & Junior: LIVERPOOL JOHN MOORES. (Men’s Div. 2)
Senior: CHESTER (Men’s Div. 1) & Junior: CHESTER TITANS (Men’s Div. 2)
The amended relevant rule on “TWINNED CLUBS” states:
- 2 clubs may apply for the status of “Twinned Clubs” at the AFM.
- This rule is to enable clubs with a low number of Registered Players to “borrow” players from another club and use them, when short of players, as if they were members of the same club.
- Such “Twinned Clubs” must “Star” players in the higher team who may play only for the team for which they are starred.
- Rules “B. 6 to 10” should be followed also.
This means that, apart from the 4 “Starred Players” in the senior team, then the others can be used to play for the other team IN EMERGENCY ONLY, as if they were “A” & “B” teams in the same club.
