Club, Team and League Admin 1 of 4

1. EBFA GotFootball Player Registration


Registrations up to 31 July are free of charge. Registrations completed after this are charged at £10 - this League/Admin charge is passed on as part of the Club's Player Subscription invoice.

For start of season, this process MUST be completed by 1st Sept latest - ID Cards will be issued at League MANAGERS meeting on first Thursday of Sept term (8pm - Bracknell) for first matches on first Sat of Sept term ....

Players MUST FIRST be registered with the CLUB https://paysubsonline.com/thirdpartyRegistration.aspx?clubID=6e7c92e48d90b2fcc6305ee9cdf7dad7 then will be added to (and removed from) your GotFootball squad by the Membership Secretary.

You'll need new, good quality head/shoulders photos (jpg or gif) for ALL players and good quality photo/scan of passport/Birth Cert for NEW players (proof of DoB). Phone/tablet photos are fine as long as best quality is selected.

1. If necessary, crop your updated player photos to head/shoulders (passport style) and prepare proof of DoB for new players:

Please double check that photos inserted are passport style i.e. NOT loads of background and very little face

Proof Of Age Document for NEW players - pdf or photo of document - normally birth Certificate or passport.

2a. Team Managers/Admin

EBFA - Click here to enter EBFA GotFootball system

Click on 'Team Account'
Login using the details originally emailed from Ian Nile (EBFA) - contact Steve Kay if no Team username/password.
In the Event table Click 'Team List' against the relevant League/Season (may need to click 'Frozen' link if mid season)
Scroll down and click player's surname in the 'Full Team Players List'
On 'Player Info' tab ...
Add/update email address (mandatory)
*Add/update Home Address and Mobile Number or leave parent/carer to do this (mandatory)
Upload the new photo
For NEW players, click 'Documents' tab and upload proof of DoB.

You can add jersey numbers as an option - here is the Club shirt spreadsheet as held by kit@berkscountyfc.com

IN 'MANAGER' AREA, ENSURE 'HEAD MANAGER' HOME ADDRESS IS IN THE SYSTEM FOR DELIVERY OF ID CARDS. TEAM ADMIN PERSON (IF DIFFERENT) SHOULD BE DESIGNATED AS 'ASST. MANAGER' (HOME ADDRESS ALSO ADDED)

Complete same for all players. Membership Secretary will add & remove players

Click 'Email Team' at top of page - send them an email to prompt parent(s) to sign the agreement (copy/paste the info in 2b. below ) and remember to tick the box to include username/password in the email

(*this info is in the Club database)

To check who has signed the Guardian Agreement go to the Player List and change 'View by Event' to 'East Berks Football Alliance'. The end column (Forms) shows who has completed the form.

Mid season, you will receive new player ID cards in the post but to check which players have been approved by the League, again, go to the Player List and change 'View by Event' to 'East Berks Football Alliance'. Players approved by the league are marked with a 'P' (end column 'TYPE') and any errors are shown here in the jersey number column.

Note: players cannot play without ID card .... either as the plastic card or image on phone sent by League.

Note: some systems may block the GotFootball emails as Spam/Junk ... so may be worth checking receipt via a normal email.

Before start of season, the League allows you to select preferred section/division. The League will do this for existing teams based on average points per game and the Club will do this for new teams. As a team manager, if you have gained or lost some 'superstars' you may want to advise the League using this function:

Click Events than choose correct League/Season then Preferred Division (left side of 'Team' tab)

2b. Parents/Carers

Player Registrations completed with the League before 31 July are free. After this £6 is added to player subs for 'League Admin' costs.

Managers - copy/paste this info into an email raised from GotFootball as above:

Please Login using the username/password/link supplied at the bottom of this email.

On the 'Welcome' page, click the 'Guardian Agreement Form - form available' link for the correct 'Event'. This allows you to approve the Player as follows:

Update any Parent information required.

Please note that our Club is listed as "Berks County FC" (not 'Berks & Bucks FA') in the drop-down and you need to tick the small box at bottom of this screen to acknowledge league rules.

Please complete contact/emergency info and agree to payment even though this is £0.00 (Club is billed separately).

Please either send me a new player photo (head/shoulder only) ASAP or upload yourselves.

For NEW players to the League or team, click 'Club Documents' tab in 'My Profile' and upload pic/scan of proof of DoB (passport or birth certificate) or again, send the document to me ASAP

Note: there is a £10 league/admin charge for registrations completed between 31 July and 31 March (closure of registration/transfer window)

Many thanks
