KCRFU approval must be granted before any teams are combined. Due to the volume of applications received by the KCRFU, clubs will not be notified of rejected applications. A lack of a response to any application must not be deemed to be silent consent to the application. Unless you have received written approval from the KCRFU, the teams for whom the application has been made must not combine.
When completing this form, please refer to the information ‘bubbles’, which provide essential additional instructions and guidance.
Combining teams should happen on an exceptional basis, only and be considered strictly in accordance with the reasons contained within Clause 15.2 of Regulation 15.
If there are more players of the older age group within the team, then you must provide a detailed explanation of how players will be managed, to ensure no more than 50% of the team on the pitch are of the older age group will be required. It will be more difficult to gain approval in this instance.
The reasoning for combining teams should be comprehensive and demonstrate the benefit to the player(s) concerned. It is unlikely this will be done in less than 150 words.
