The new season is now upon us so we would ask all clubs to get their house in order as early as possible. Get you players signed up as soon as you can. Make sure as Secretary, the registration forms are filled in correctly, Date of Birth, Club last played for, Player actually signs the form, all these thing should be checked before you leave them in to the office and if not filled in correctly they will be returned to you. It is your responsibility to correctly register your players the AUL will only try and make sure you do but it is not up to the AUL to Register the player correctly.

Please when you see your fixture on Monday’s in the Herald Striker make contact with the opposition and referee immediately this will avoid any problems later on in the week if someone is not available and being early in the week changes can be made to make sure the fixture goes ahead. The contact that is made on the Friday should be the second contact and this would be to confirm that the pitch is on or off after the local councils release their lists.

Be aware of the ITC. If you are signing a player who has come back to live in Ireland or has arrived to live here ask the question “did you play in an organised League where he has come from” and if the answer is yes that player may require an International Transfer Certificate. All applications for an ITC must come from the Secretary of the Club the player is registered for. The player must register first for his club and then the club applies for the ITC. All ITC applications must be sent to itc@fai.ie the 1st ITC window has closed until the transfer window opens again.
