MATCH CARDS or GAME TEAM LISTS - These are called Line Ups in PlayHQ. 

-  ALL SENIOR, YOUTH AND SCHOOL TEAMS MUST DO MATCH CARDS.  Match cards need to be completed online prior to the match for every game, including the player numbers for THAT game i.e. Alternate strip and fill-in players.  
 - NO MATCH CARDS FOR JUNIORS -  We won't be doing electronic match cards for juniors.   In the junior space please get them to register in the appropriate age group but we do not require them to be put in specific teams (unless you want to for your own purposes) as

()   INSTRUCTIONS -PlayHQ MATCH CARDS/"PLAYER LINE UPs"  -CLICK HERE  or "My Teams" section - video info               
                       - Coaches and Managers log in to PlayHQ to create the match cards (Line Up) each week  
                       - Club admin can also do Team Line Ups      
()   PLAYER LINE UP CUT OFF - Entering and adjustments - Will they be available right up to game start or will they be locked out prior?  Yes right up to game time.  No functionality to note Captain or Goalkeeper.  Ideally the coach/manager will do their team line up in the week leading up to the match and then at that turf on the day and just do any edits and add their fill ins.  The nominated team members will be allocated to the team.

()  AT THE TURFS - We will have a tablet allocated to each individual turf (eg 3 tablets at nunweek park) so their game day can be completed there if necessary 







() CASUAL PLAYERS/Fill in players - NOT registered currently playing for a Carlton Redcliffs Team.  These will need to be done at the Turf on the tablets or the Club Admin can do this.  (Sheena:)) using  basic contacts and DOB.   "Fill ins" get automatically marked as a fill in (as advised by NZH).             *FYI - PlayHQ working on this for Managers - Click here for information.

       There is an “add fill in”button that allows you to add anyone – they don’t have to be a member.


() PUBLIC PUBLISHED PLAYER LINE UPS - These will be published online at the games start time and everyone will be able to see these.

()  Total numbers of players - All teams can have 16 – CPL can have 18 (Minimum of 14) .  Please ensure all your teams have their minimum quantity of players allocated to their squad before their first match. CPL 14 players and the all other teams  12 players. Please ensure you have this complete before this coming Friday 1st April  for your senior teams.

()  MEMBERS who are involved with different clubs -  e.g. Coach at Uni but play at Carlton Redcliffs?  Members just need to register in both under the different roles.

[]  TRANSFERS 2022

  •  A club to club transfer.   Registering a member that played for a different club last season.  

          i)    Club secretary needs to go through the Attached list exported from PlayHQ of 2022 senior transfers to date (ive sorted it) and check the players that have registered for a club in 2022 but noted in the custom questions that they played for your club in 2021.
          ii)   Decline transfer - The only action you need to take is if this transfer is declined please email their new club and copy me in noting that the transfer is declined and the reason.
          iii) This system relied on our participants filling out their registration questions directly so it may not have captured everyone. If you think this list is way off and you have had more leave your club please let me know and we will switch to plan B. 

          iv) In regards to your clubs unfinancial players - Please either add them to the unfinancial sheet

  •   An Association to Association transfer and registration. Sam Grimshaw will sort out the Association transfers at my end and let clubs know if any of their new players are declined..
