SECOND TEAM CUPS [rules apply to juniors and seniors alike]
- None of a club's 5 List A starred players can play in the 2nd team cup
- A player who plays in a particular round of the 1st team cup cannot play in the same round of the 2nd team cup and vice versa – so anyone who has played in Round 2 of the 1st Team Cups cannot play in Round 2 of the 2nd team cups
- For rounds after the round in which a club's 1st team are eliminated, a player cannot play in the 2nd team cup if at the time of the game in question he has played 50% or more of his personal league (not cup games on the 1st team).
By way of example, player A has played 3 1st team league games, 2 2nd team league games and 2 3rd team league games. So of his 7 personal league appearances he has only played 3 1st team league games so he can play in Round 2 of the 2nd team cup (provided paragraphs 1) and 2) do not apply).
