Player's must have played at least three league matches for their current registered team in the 16/17 season before they can play in the competition. Players can be issued a handicap number once they have played the qualifying number of matches. Any team playing an ineligible player will forfeit all matches in which he/she played.
Substitutes will be allowed from any division providing they have a handicap and are eligible to play, but teams wishing to field a sub MUST contact the opposing team captain on all counts of playing a sub to gain permission for them to play (not just players from a higher division). This rule is intended to prevent the shield becoming a Bidmead-type event. Players may sub twice only in the competition, and these substitutions will not count in the league.
If a team only has two players divide the sum of the two handicaps by two to get the team handicap. Each match against the 'dummy' 3rd player will end 44-0. If both teams have two players the match between the 'dummy' players will end 0-0. One-player teams are not permitted.
