Player’s Clothing – query answered

  • September 21, 2021

A query has arisen about clothing. A club has an Under18 player who wears a tag, which they cover with padding.

Whilst this is not covered in the Regulations, please could you advise on what we can do to allow this lad to play.

Checking with regulations, advice is that provided the tag is covered and remains so during the game, as described and does not present a danger to the wearer or other players, then this is permissible.
