This bye law to remain in force until 1st November 2016. All relevant byelaws to be amended/deleted as appropriate.
(i) A member of a club in Wexford town whose Permanent Residence is currently outside Wexford town may transfer to the club in whose Catchment area he/she permanently lives.
(ii) A member of a club in Wexford town who satisfies the CCC that his Permanent Residence has changed to the Catchment of a club outside Wexford town may be granted a transfer.
(iii) A member of a club in Wexford town who wishes to return to his First Club may be granted a transfer.
Amendment: An adult or child who did not play for any club for 2 calendar years is a free agent- for Wexford Town only
Coiste Bainisti Loch Garman – Carried with amendment
In relation to interclub transfers between the 6 clubs in Wexford town, we propose that where a player wishes to transfer from one club to another club in hurling or football or both, that a player must wait a period of one year before his transfer is allowed i.e. if he transfer in December 2013, he is not eligible to compete at a competitive level with that club until 1st January 2015. The player would become a member of the new club immediately once his transfer is granted, however he cannot play competitively with his new club for a period of one year.
The above scenario to apply only in interclub transfers between the 6 clubs of Wexford town, normal transfer rules to continue between rural clubs and between rural and urban clubs in Wexford town.
The transfer committee would reserve the right to allow transfers in what they deem to be exceptional circumstances.
Faythe Harriers – Ruled Out of Order
That Cumann Luthchleas Gael Loch Garman will formulate and circularize a “Code of Conduct” for match umpires that will clearly outline the duties and responsibilities of Umpires.
Oulart the Ballagh – Referred to Referees
In hurling, for any free been taken, penalty or otherwise, no ball can be struck inside the 20 metre line. The penalty for breach of this is a free out. Linesmen & Referees to police the issue.
St Anne’s – Lost
For Leinster Club football championship the first round of the championship proper must be a two year home and away system, with open draw for second round.
