Last season some of our clubs were penalised as they played players who were suspended although this fact was not shown on WGS.
Following a question posed by the League the ECFA have responded as follows:-
“Suspended players are shown on the Whole Game System.
There may be instances where players have more than one FAN record where a suspension would not be immediately apparent, and all County FAs are doing a lot of work to reduce the number of duplicate FANs.
WGS also enhances this process by alerting clubs of duplicate records when searching for players, and leagues when registering players.
If a club has any queries concerning whether a player is suspended, they should contact their County FA.”
