Player Registrations

Six Derbyshire FA sanctioned leagues will be completing their player registrations through the Whole Game System for the 2017/2018 season.

As part of the national roll out, the following Derbyshire FA sanctioned leagues have adopted the Whole Game System (WGS) Player Registrations functionality.


Midlands Regional Alliance  Hope Valley Amateur Football League 
Long Eaton Sunday League  Chesterfield & District Sunday Football League
Alfreton & District Sunday Football League  Central Midlands Football League 

Benefits of WGS Player Registrations

The FA piloted the WGS Player Registration process in the 2016/2017 season featuring 60 leagues from across the country including one league in Derbyshire. Following feedback from the pilot leagues, The FA has now decided to roll this out nationally.

This process will ensure a more efficient player registration process and will help save time for club and league volunteers responsible for player registrations in the future.

Support Resources

The FA have created a mixture of support resources including e-learning resources, a step-by-step downloadable guide and support buttons on every page on the Whole Game System for the player registration process.

To access the step-by-step e-learning resource please click here. It is recommended that you open this e-learning resource on Google Chrome.

To access the step-by-step pdf document, please click here.

We strongly recommend that you look through these support resources as these provide simple steps to complete all necessary actions.

If after going through the above resources you still do not fully understand what you need to do to complete your player registrations,


Some processes that form part of the Whole Game System player registration functionality can vary between leagues due to different requirements.

Clubs only need to complete the "data-cleansing" if your league adds players to it's Full-Time page.

Some leagues have decided that they would still like a paper registration form being sent to them with the player's signature on. If that is the case, it is advised that you collate all of the completed registration forms first and then send them to your league at the same time once you have submitted the online registration to your league.

If you do not fully understand exactly what your league require, you should seek clarification from the League Registration Officer.
