RULES BROKEN LAST 2 YEARS

Must have enough player for 2 teams
guest or marquee player can play only ONE game per season
Cant play more than 2 starting senior players in the reserves
Can't name an injured player on your team sheet that won't play
Must be open dual registration
starting with 10 players then 15 seconds in subbing off the player that wasnt even on just so that you could bend the reserve stacking rues

RULES NOT BROKEN

Getting all FFT girls to Olympia
Organising super league games and championship games on different days for the entire season
Getting FFT to turn a blind eye to the above breaches



Having their team pulled out of the Championship 1 league for playing an underage player under someone else's name

Nothing but the truth there. To say its lies is disingenuous at best and plain arrogance at worst.

#1 & #2 That is very funny. Olympia are the only team in the WSL that has not broken any rules with in the women's competition. Most other clubs have. So I suggest you direct your question to other clubs. Please feel free to ask FFT to confirm this. But then you must come on here and offer your apologies. Yes ok. We all know you will not.
