Players must be members of the club, and must have been members for at least three months immediately prior to the closing date for entry to the county competition. Moreover, nominated players must play regularly at the club or for the club, or contribute regularly in some other way, or have met this criterion in previous years, yet be unable to currently do so through some personal circumstance (eg illness, work, childcare, etc.).
