9. Procedure for Player Suspension for non payment of fees

  • If after payment deadlines have passed and/or payment plans are not adhered to, the committee will take action to suspend a member from playing with the club until such time as corrective action has been taken to bring outstanding fees up to date. This will always be a last resort of the committee and would only happen if previous communications with members have been ignored. Please note if a team has to forfeit due to player availability, then some or all of this fine maybe passed on.
  • The decision to suspend players from participating can only be proposed by the Club Treasurer in consultation with the Club Registrar, with the agreement of at least one other Executive Committee member.
  • The player will be contacted, in writing, 24 hours before the next game and informed of the decision; the player’s coach will also be advised at the same time.
  • The player may only be allowed to play again at the recommendation of the Registrar or Treasurer once they have fulfilled the agreed requirements for payment.
  • All player registration payment details will be kept strictly confidential between the committee, the coach, and the member concerned.

10. Procedure for Player Fines / Red Cards

  • Players who are suspended by FW for disciplinary actions or red cards are personally responsible for payment of all fines and will be ineligible for selection until the fine/s is paid in full and penalties served.
  • Depending on the nature of the fine or Red card, MCFC retains the right to impose additional fines or bans at the discretion of the Committee.
  • Unpaid fines will be carried over to the next season and the member will not be eligible for registration until unpaid fines are paid in full. A position in the team will NOT be held. If the fine remains unpaid FW will be notified to ensure the player is not registered at another club while outstanding fees or fines remain unpaid.
