Zero tolerance on Player Poaching

The issue of Player Poaching, which is the practice of team mangers approaching young players from other teams and their parents directly and trying to persuade them to switch teams, is becoming increasingly widespread. More and more teams are having to fold due to their players being poached to join supposedly better teams with the promise of more facilities and better chances of winning trophies.

Twyford Comets have decided to take a stand against this and have issued a policy statement which has been adopted by the club and is now part of the club’s operating guidelines.
