Also bonkers that it’s Swansea, who play in the English system.

Players registrations are held by the football association of the country to which they identify nationally, Swansea are in Wales and as Wales are a different country to England under FIFA jurisdiction then Welsh players who want to play in another country need to have their registration ‘passed on’ between the FAs. The aim is to ensure players aren’t playing for multiple clubs but as it’s for ages 10+ it also aims to protect against trafficking. Think John Obi-Mikel, his ‘registration’ was transferred from Lyn Oslo to Man Utd & Chelsea in an underhand manner, but crucially he wasn’t allowed to play for either team as his international registration hasn’t been transferred. It only covers official matches, training & friendlies are fine.

It's not only registration, disciplinary issues are dealt the same way. If Swansea appeal a red card, then it's the Welsh FA that review it no the English one.

Half time: Southport 1 City 2

McClure scored first then had a handball awarded against him from which Southport equalised from the spot. City regained the lead with a goal by Young or King (two different names give on Southport Twitter feed)

Think it was Young Doc, they had it as King but deleted and changed to Young

Good start!
