Swansea v Cwm Draig, BWWPL Junior Division 2
|12:07 PM (3 minutes ago)|
It has come to my attention that in the game between Swansea v Cwm Draig, in Junior Division 2 you have played a number of players who are not Swim Wales members and a number who are not either Swim Wales or Swim England registered to your club of Cwm Draig.
|Name||ASA/WASA Registration No||DoB for Juniors|
|George Jones||127969||04||Not a SW or SE member|
|Katie Jo Williams||918048||04||Not a SW or SE member|

This is contrary to the rules of Swim England and Swim Wales, where all players have to be bonafide members of the club. Therefore George Glover, Nathan Lambert and Charlotte Martin are Swim England registered, but not Swim Wales registered for Cwm Draig; and Immogen Glassberg is in fact registered with Swansea with Swim Wales.
Although not in breach of Rule 16.1, and therefore you avoid the fines of £50.00 per player, although this will be looked at in light of this, you are in breach of Swim England and Swim Wales rules as regards to registered players in that George Jones and Katie Williams did play and who are not registered with Swim Wales as a member of Cwm Draig.
In light of your failure to register these players with your club and Swim Wales, the points you received from the game against Swansea on 23rd February 2020 will now be awarded to Swansea, and you will now have to make sure all players are registered with Swim Wales to represent Cwm Draig before they are allowed to play again in the Bristol & West Water Polo League.
