Definition of "Home Grown" Players

A home grown player must have been registered with his current Club and/or a Club and/or any other football club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales, for a period, continuous or not of three seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).  For the purposes of this definition of Home Grown Player only, a season will be deemed to commence on the date on which the first Transfer Window in that season closes and expires on the date of the final league match of the season.

The three year qualification period (to qualify as Home Grown) will still be achieved even if the player joined part way through the first Transfer Window, even if the season had already started.
