Debt Recovery


Sadly every season players leave clubs without paying their debts.

This leaves some clubs either unable to pay debys to the league or fold owing money.

The West Riding FA debt recovery scheme is the clubs and leagues opportunity to try to recoup money owed by players. All affiliated clubs and leagues may ask us to issue a Sine Die Suspension against individuals that owe them money.

The West Riding County Football Association is required to operate a system to collect debt on behalf of the affiliated clubs, leagues and other associations.
