Details of the nationwide pilot scheme.

The Football Association has received the approval of the International Football Association Board to pilot a 'Rolling Substitutes' scheme for leagues outside of the National League System (i.e. leagues below Step 7) for a period of 2 years. The decision as to whether to take part in this nationwide pilot or not, and if so how many substitutes will be allowed, will be voted upon at the League AGM. All Club Secretary's have received a copy of the FA trial document which is also attached to this notice. Club officials, team managers and players are encouraged to discuss this document within their clubs prior to the League AGM.
