We’ve had a number of incidents across the age-groups related to the wearing of jewellery during matches.
This was highlighted in the managers meetings, but to confirm, jewellery of any sort cannot be worn during a match and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewellery is not permitted.
This is an FA rule, not League imposed (we simply enforce it).
The following link provides guidance, and please note that a caution can be issued if a player refuses to remove an item. https://www.hampshirefa.com/news/2021/may/27/a-reminder-about-dangerous-equipment.
Please ensure parents and players are aware, and please brief your parent ref’s as to the steps they should take if they spot a player wearing jewellery.
