Sheffield League: Players Registered at the Fixture Meeting 2017 under Rule 17(a)...
and identified from time to time with the aid of the Player Registration Monitor

Click the link above. Then click on "Threshold=4". You will get a list of all Sheffield League players who have played 4 or more games in the top half of the team shown in their record. The lists below show, in the players registered (Rule 17(a)) by their clubs at the start of the season. Players discovered by the monitor link,"Threshold=4" are automatically registered under Rule 17(d) Those so identified are show as "Additional" in red below, together with the date they played their 4th and qualifying game - but please check yourself  before making any claims because your webmaster's logic is admittedly fallible!
Note: Obviously, the list doesn't include players becoming registered under Rule 17(d), more recently than the last update. You need to use the monitor yourself for an exhaustive check. Also, Captains are encouraged to study Comments on Player Registration by Division Secretaries at the bottom of this page.

Summary of some Comments on Player Registration - by Three Division Secretaries 
  • The responsibility for checking the eligibility of players lies primarily with the club. In making registration automatic after 4 games in the top half of a team, Rule 17(d) makes this clear. If a lower team includes a player who has become registered under Rule 17(d) -or 17(a) of course - for a higher team, his/her result - and all results on the boards below (Rule 18(d)) - should be nullified when the infringement is noticed - no matter how long ago the infringement took place, or how many such infringements have been overlooked in the meantime.
  • While Division Secretaries may check for additional registrations from time to time, any failure by them to perform this onerous task accurately does not protect the team from the penalty of the loss of games.
  • There seem to be a number of ways in which clubs can, wittingly or unwittingly, "abuse" the system, and which the rules may not always adequately cover. Again, clubs are in the best position to police themselves, and are morally obliged to work within the spirit of the system rather than wait to be "caught" by the Secretaries. e.g.:
    • If a club registered a player at the start of the season under Rule 17(a) and that player is, or becomes, a "ghost" by non-participation, the club should voluntarily register a "replacement".
    • A club may find it desirable to register for a higher team a player previously registered for a lower team. Clearly the spirit of the system calls for an additional player to be immediately registered to the lower team.
Rule 17(c) attempts to deal with such issues, but again clubs should not leave the onus for this with the Secretaries.
