In the older grades I haven't seen them checked once. It's just too hard to do, whereas last year the old system we checked them most games. Have we played against ring ins? Who knows, but it certainly hasn't made it easier, that's for sure.
Definately hasnt worked, ID cards have been checked once may be twice with the 3 teams I am involved in this season whereas last season it was before every match. One thing we should change straight away before next season. I'm not sure what the $$ saving is under this system but whatever it is its not worth it.
As a mutual observer, last season somewhere around 75% of the games i saw had ID cards checked before the game. This season it is around 10%. So pretty much every one here has the same opinion on that. I must say though last season any player could have got in a team as long as they held a card. Photos on the cards where hardly checked let alone age and division.
What I can't understand is how can we relate such a significant drop to the new system. I can understand that borrowing players (which is not allowed this late in the season now) is harder but checking ID sheets made harder? Hardly.
I'd still vote for the old system for next year which lends itself to the way our association is structured. The new ID sheet system is good for FNSW comps where every club has one team in each age group only and all their teams play on the same ground and/or on different days (snr/jnr) one after the other.

But why were sheet style team id cards really introduced in the first place, because FNSW started to do it or a saving in money, neither I suggest. Your season was also delayed by 2 weeks due ground availability and then Easter too.

Last year one of our 35s had a photo of one of the kids at the club on his Id card. I kept meaning to get it changed but never got around to it... Shows how much they were needed! In my 3rd year in 35s 1s I have never seen cards or sheet s checked. Conversely when I played the season before in div 2 35s, we presented them before every game, but that was probably because that's just was just a habit that team were in... I don't think having the sheet makes it harder to check, in some ways it is easier. I do think maybe each team should hand the sheet to the ref made before the game or something...if you get one... Would just be an extra disincentive to playing an unregistered player, which I know has happened in the past.
It is not the referees role to ensure the cards are checked.
And Granville's attitude, quite rightly as well IMHO, is if you don't check the cards don't bother crying if you if you subsequently loose to a team that did have illegal players, use to be the first question we asked, ie "did you check the cards?" if the answer was no then it was a case of see ya later :-)
Well guys Pendle Hill are definitely making the card system WORK.
12/2 girls from Winston Hills turned up to play last Sunday but unfortunately The manager had to rush 1 of her other children to the doctors. The Pendo manager said no cards no game. They gave Winsto till 9.05 to get the cards to the game. 9.06 Pendo manager calls the forfeit what a GRUB. Cards turned up at 9.15. Pendo lead the comp by 6 points NOW by 9. Hope your girls enjoyed the morning!!!!!OH better still hope you get a big kick out of being the 12/2 girls minor prems.
Obviously with the promotion relegation system in 12 Girls he is looking next year to make it to division 1 and pocket the $$$$ from the TV rights. Needless to say I wonder why you need to play in a team where at least one player has a thingy to play a home and away system of allocating grounds.
Firstly let me say I wasn't at the game but the story I was given was a bit different to yours. Whilst there were no cards I believe it was the referee's call in the end as they said that whilst the game could go ahead without cards it couldn't start without a team sheet.
Knowing the people associated with the team I would be surprised if they said that they wouldn't play winston hills unless they had their cards. But as I said before - I wasn't at the game. Must say that I was surprised winston hills was unable to get a copy of the teamsheet from the host club - or don't granville send copies to the host club any longer???
number9 Didn’t hear about the team sheet as i would have thought the same, would have been able to get one from the canteen will check. But rest assured the manager didn’t want to play. Pretty poor really, could understand if it was 35,s or 45,s but 12 Girls!!
