RINGERS Empty RINGERS

Post by Jtkmd1 20/11/22, 08:08 pm

Has anyone else come across ringers in youth soccer? My daughter just played in the Hurst Turkey Shoot this weekend. They are a Division 2 team and are competitive at their level. We had to play Sting Intrepid 11G twice including in the final, and were completely dominated by three of their players who turned out to be ringers from DKSC (btw coach it would be less obvious if they weren’t wearing their DKSC kits!). Would have been competitive against the actual team but these three players were amazing…amongst the best I have seen at that level. Then I found out that this is actually legal! What’s the point of this??? They had three of their own players sitting on the bench watching these girls run rings around us. Their coach even left them in at the end when they were already up 4-0! What a jackass! What does this actually achieve for the team? Is a medal worth it for the girls to sit out and watch the “guest” players win it for them? Does this seem stupid to anyone else??

They are called guest players. Very routine to have for tournaments, especially around holidays when may need extra bodies. If within the same club, no issues at most tournaments. If from different club, each tournament tends to treat differently. You have to look at a tournament like it is a different "league" (like indoor).

Yeah, they had more than enough bodies. Very convenient that they brought in star players and sat their own while the “guests” played nearly the entire game and even tried to run up the score. Very poor sportsmanship if you ask me. Glad we don’t have that coach!
