  • Do NOT call to John Copithorne's house or workplace.
  • Do NOT send your form by Registered Post, Courier or other form of delivery, except the regular Post

•   Outgoing Club
•   County Board (outgoing club)
•   County Boards (out of county club transfer)
•   County Boards (inter county transfer)

Incomplete, improperly or incorrectly completed forms will be rejected.



  • Athletes must be in good stead with the outgoing club, i.e. they must not owe any membership fee, or other arrears, and all club property in their possession must have been returned
  • Athletes whose membership of the outgoing club has lapsed by more than three years, i.e. last registered in 2017 (NOT registered in any of the years 2020, 2019 or 2018) do NOT require a transfer, i.e. they are free to change clubs without going through the formal transfer process - they can be simply registered by the incoming club.
