(c) The step-up rules are as follows:
(i) Any player may play for another team in their own squad providing that the team is higher in the league tables and the player’s % average of their own division is less than the third placed player for the team in the divisional averages. After the first week, one player only may be used from a different club or squad providing they are assigned to a team in a lower division and there are five teams between them in the league tables. They can only represent the one team in any one fixture. The bottom six teams in the league may use any player from any team in the bottom six.
(ii) Any registered player may play as a substitute for any other player within the league a maximum of six times within a season.
(iii) Any player achieving an average of 80% or over in the previous season and remaining in the same division are excluded from stepping up for other teams.
(iv) If either (i), (ii) or (iii) are broken a team may choose that the player remains with their own team, pays a £3 fine and forfeits any wins or is permanently transferred to the higher team at the discretion of the Committee.
Below is a list of players who have substituted and the number of times they have substituted to date:
|PREMIER||NO OF TIMES PLAYED UP|
