County Registrar's Notice Regarding Newly Transferred Athletes - April 2019

Transfers Approved in April 2019 are Effective from May 1st 2019

Transfer Window Closed


Cork Athletics County Registrar, John Copithorne, has said that clubs registering newly transferred athletes must please stop doing so - These athletes should NOT be registered with their new club until at least May 1st

Athlete transfers are effective from May 1st. In the meantime, they MAY run as unattached during April, and are expected to wear neutral colours, normally white, and should NOT wear the new clubs colours before May 1st.

Some clubs have, apparently, being trying to 'get round'/fool the registration system, by registering athletes using different name spellings, and/or altered dates of birth. Such practices may invalidate the athlete's insurance cover, and also leaves the registering club in a vulnerable position. It may also affect athletes eligibility for Championships, based on incorrect dates.

In addition, it compromises the registration system, with duplicate athletes, and will give rise to incorrect registration figures.
