At a recent meeting of the RFYL Management Committee and Durham FA it was highlighted that the League should be following the FA Standard Code of Rules for Youth Competitions 2014-2015 and in particular Rule 8(A)(ii) which states;

"No player registered with an FA Premier League or Football League Academy under an Elite Player Performance Plan contained within Youth Development Rules will be permitted to play in this competition.Details of the Youth Development Plan are published on the FA website."

The RFYL are required to comply with these rules and therefore a new rule,Rule 7(A) was added to the RFYL Rules from July 2014.

Clubs are therefore now required WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT to de-register any players who are also registered with an Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) at a Premier League or Football League Academy.

Any clubs found to be playing a player registered with an EPPP shall be dealt with by the League under Rule 7(L)  of the RFYL relating to ineligible players.

The League Management Committee have decided to amend the current player registration forms to include a statement requiring the player to confirm that they are NOT registered with an Academy under an EPPP.
