Some time ago the League recommended that when clubs sign a new player on they check with Robert Craven at the ECFA that the player is not suspended.
Given that the WGS system cannot be relied upon show every player that is suspended, the League have sought other methods of finding this information out.
Hidden away on the “Players” page of the new E.C.F.A. website at www.essexfa.com/players there are two list towards the bottom of the page under the heading “Related Documents“.
One list shows you recently suspended players and the other list shows you sine-die suspended players. These pages appear to be updated weekly.
It is strongly recommended that Club Secretaries check these pages on a regular basis, certainly before any Cup ties, and save a timed and dated copy to their computers in case any problems crop up later.
