Online Player Availability

Posted on by Fraser Murray

With the added challenge of running a fourth team on a full time basis for the first time, it's now more important than ever that players enter their availablity on-line.

Before you start using the tool, you must:

  1. create an account
  2. link your account to your "player profile" - to do so contact us, entering only your name, your email address, the type ("player/username" tie-up) and your username in the "your enquiry" field.

It's possible for one user account to update more than one player, which should be of particular benefit to parents/guardians.

When you're using the tool, you'll have the option to set-up email reminders in case you forget to enter your availability for a fixture.

All of the team captains and managers will greatly appreciate your assistance in this matter.
