We used to have cards but they disappeared years ago. Before the game I would have to collect and check the cards (did the picture on the card match the face in front of me) and then after the game ensure that only those names were on the game sheet. Game sheets are done online and it impossible to put a non-registered player on the game sheet. I no longer have to check. The penalties for playing an unregistered player (forfeiture of the game, points deductions and bans for the coach) seems to be keeping clubs honest.Sorry , a bit late to this thread but how do you know there are unregistered players on the pitch?
In England, we have no sight of match cards anymore so have no Idea who is playing.
Een when we did, I don't know if the name on the card is the name of the player on the pitch.
