I'm not sure Del Capo would agree with you on that one Cutsyke!
The following proposal has been supported by members of the Tier 3 and 4 February 2013 Regulatory Meeting.
The proposal for “Community Dual Registration” (CDR) will involve a small number of part-time professional players from the Championships playing in the community game whilst still on contract.
Im fully aware Lord Charles, are you?

Subject: North West Youth League - Contracted Players
Just to let you all know that we are still awaiting the Community Dual Registration Agreement to be ratified by the Community Board.
However, yesterday I spoke with North West Youth Chair, Hilary Steel MBE to confirm that NWY had included in their constitution their acceptance to allow Contracted Players to return to play in the North West Youth Leagues on “Permit” from their Professional Club.
All registrations need to be accepted by the NWY Committee and players should return to the Community Club from which they were Contracted, but NWY will consider the player joining another club of his choice.
The “Permit” should be issued to the Community Club who will submit it along with the players registration to NWY for acceptance.
The Professional Club will need to liaise with the Community Club on a weekly basis to the players availability, but selection in the team will be down to the Community Club.
Whilst no limit has been set to how many “Permit Players” a Community Club may have, only three may be selected in any one team.
Whilst this may not be of benefit to clubs outside of the North West area, I feel that the Hilary and her committee should be congratulated and thanked for taking this decision unilaterally.
For the players sakes, I hope clubs will take advantage of this opportunity and use it to strengthen their relationships with Community Clubs.
Also a reminder that Contracted players are still eligible to play in the National Youth League and the same procedure should be followed.
