Player Registration League Set-Up
Almost 300 leagues have now completed the player registration process set-up. Please remember to refer to the relevant training guides before completing this task. By way of reminder, the following business process has been put in place to ensure that this important phase of activity is completed efficiently;
Should your County FA not come back to you within 24 hours of being advised that your league set-up process is complete, please advise firstname.lastname@example.org. Should your league require two sets of registration requirements please contact Danny McConnell. Danny will assist you in completing the set-up process and then open your registration window.
The FA Support Team has received a number of calls from clubs asking when it is likely that they can start registering players. As it is only the league that has this information to hand please make sure that you advise clubs accordingly.
For more information or assistance please email email@example.com. A full list of County FA Lead Officers can be found at the rear of the newsletter.
League Official Full Time Integration Session
Leagues using Full-Time will be increasingly keen to have their integration processes completed by the County FA/FA. Before requesting that the integration processes are carried out please ensure that your affiliation and sanction records look correct remember that the quality of team, club, cups and division data that is sent across to Full-Time will be entirely dependent upon the robustness of the club affiliation and league sanctioning information that has been collected. Before contacting your County FA regarding Full-Time integration please refer to the relevant training guides and take the time to watch a recording of the recent Full-Time Integration Briefing, a recording of which can be downloaded from the following link
