It has therefore been decided that Devon FA will approve the use of repeat substitutions during pre-season matches for all clubs outside the National League System.
For clarification, clubs that play in the National League System will include clubs that play in the South West Peninsula League and above.
If a team from the South Devon Football League are playing against a team from the Plymouth and West Devon Football League for example, repeat substitutions would be permitted.
The two competing teams must agree before the match the number of repeat substitutions allowed and inform the referee prior to the kick off of the match.
We hope that this decision taken by the Devon FA will allow as many players as possible to partake in pre-season matches.
