2nd XI Cup Round of 32
We have again been asked a number of player eligibility questions for the 2nd XI Cup on Sunday 20th.
The rules are all on the website - see GMCL Rules on the Blue menu bar and see Cup Competitions.
The 1st XI League Cup and 1st XI Championship cup also take place Sunday so,
those clubs with 2 teams playing on Sunday in either of the 1st XI cups AND the 2nd XI cup
Westleigh, Tottington St John's, Edenfield, Thornham
can select the teams they choose from their registered players
For those 2nd XIs where the 1st XI have a bye in the 1st XI League Cup or 1st XI Championship Cup
Oldham, Brooksbottom, Hollinwood, Bolton Deane & Derby, Elton
the standard eligibility applies for Round of 32 of the 2nd XI Cup (the second round of the 2018 2nd XI competition)
so all players selected must not have played in / been selected for (where no play) more than 50% of their personal appearances this season in 1st XI League games.
This is the R32 of the 2nd XI Cup so
players who played in R32 Derek Kay 1st XI Cup on 6th May are not eligible for this round of the 2nd XI Cup
players whose clubs played in R32 Derek Kay 1st XI Cup but they did not play in that game
must meet standard eligibility criteria for the 2nd XI Cup
so they must not have played in / been selected for (where no play) more than 50% of their personal appearances this season in 1st XI League games.
If any club feels that there should be an exception to these rules, they should apply to the Board
in writing by 9pm on the Thursday before the match for a decision on eligibility.
