Data Protection notice Re official team lines

Data Protection

As is the case with referees and the statement released by the referees association, it is now inappropriate to allow scouts and reporters to photograph all of a team line as this contravenes the Data Protection Act, may we suggest two actions to your club,

  1. If in the first instances you are allowing a photograph copy of your team line it should only be the players number and his name, therefore no address, DoB or ID number, you should fold the team sheet accordingly.
  2. It would in our view be to all parties advantage if you produced a sheet with your teams sqaud numbers and names, which could be handed out to interrested parties

All this is to protect the players playing at your club.
