Temporary Player Registrations

11 September 2020

The FA have have asked us to put a temporary player registration system in place for teams that have been struggling to get their players registered using the FA WGS.

Temporary Player Registrations

To submit a temporary player registration, please email us at info@skemjfl.co.uk with the following information:

  1. Team Name & Age Group.
  2. Name of the person submitting the request and their club role.
  3. The Name(s) and DOB's of each player you are intending to play but have been unable to register in the FA Whole Game System.

Please send the above information to us by 2pm on Saturday 12th September if you wish the player(s) to be eligible to play this Sunday.

Note that this is only a temporary measure and teams still need to get these players registered on the FA Whole Game System as soon as they can do so.

We would also like to thank all the teams that have registered players using the FA Whole Game System so far.

Notice from the FA (10/09/2020)

We know that some of your clubs have continued to struggle to register players as a result of the inaccessibility of WGS Player Registration. As a result some teams may have insufficient WGS registered players to field teams at up and coming fixtures. Rather than cancelling fixtures or preventing teams from competing we would urge you to implement the following recommendations.

Where clubs are unable to register players by the league deadline for accepting players for the next round of fixtures because they cannot access WGS.

We recommend that clubs simply email the league with the details prior to the game. After the game, clubs then register these players on WGS as soon as they are able to access the system.

Submitting this email means these players will be considered registered for the clubs. As affiliated clubs they will be insured and therefore these players will have cover.

Should a player registered in this way be subject to discipline there will be a clear email trail to identify them and take the appropriate action.

It is the FAs recommendation that leagues use this course of action, rather than cancelling fixtures.

We continue to do everything we can to improve the situation for clubs and apologise again for the disruption being caused.

Thank you for continuing to bear with us.
