    • If a substitute is league or recreational member, they can play up to 6 times.
    • If a substitute is a non-member, they can play up to 3 times.
    • A substitute can only play for one team during the season.  Matches include league fixtures as well.
    • Substitutes cannot already be playing for a team in a higher division.
    • Teams should note if a player is playing in the same cup competition.
