Title: English Work Permit Regulation
Post by: elan on March 23, 2015, 12:52:49 PM
FA Chairman's update on England Commission (http://www.thefa.com/news/thefa/2015/mar/greg-dyke-england-commission-homegrown-players-work-permits-march-2015#rBh1FMh8W0GjhZOY.99)


Football Association chairman Greg Dyke today outlined new proposals to change the rules governing home grown players in English football.

The recommendations are the latest in a series of initiatives identified as part of the England Commission, set up by Dyke in 2013 to look at ways of improving the chances of young English talent succeeding at the highest levels of the game.

Following FA-led discussions the Home Office has also confirmed changes to the existing work permit regulations, to ensure only the most talented non-EU players meet new criteria.

The changes to the home grown player rules as proposed by Dyke are:


The England Commission identified four key areas which were contributing to a shortage of top quality English players breaking through to the top tier of club football. These were:


To start addressing these problems, in October 2014, The FA announced a major investment in coaching including a new head of coaching education at St. George’s Park, 35 full-time FA coach educators and a plan to drastically raise the number of Advanced Youth and Pro Licence coaching qualification holders.

The FA also announced a plan to create football hubs in 30 English cities by 2020, with a 130% increase in artificial grass pitches in urban areas and a 50% rise in publicly accessible full-size pitches.

“The FA’s duty is to create as many opportunities as possible for young home grown talent to compete at the highest level”

 

But Dyke believes the final part of the pipeline for young home grown talent is still broken. Today’s proposed rule changes are designed to fix this long running problem.

Young players in other leading European footballing nations are being given greater opportunities to play regular senior club football between the crucial ages of 18 and 21.

English Under-21 players are getting less than half the playing time of their German, Spanish and French equivalents across the major five European leagues.

For the 12 clubs who have played in every one of the last five Premier League seasons, the number of home grown players per squad has decreased from 11.4 to 9.4. This is exacerbated by the fact that only 62% of current home grown players are qualified to play for England.

Dyke said: “The Premier League clubs, who invest millions of pounds through their academies and the Elite Player Performance Programme (EPPP), are doing a fantastic job at developing young talent. But many of the home grown players being developed at these academies are not breaking through to play regular first team football.

“The Premier League has already recognised the problem and introduced home grown player quotas. But since those rules were introduced in 2010, the average number of home grown players in a Premier League squad has stayed largely the same and has actually decreased significantly at the 12 clubs who have been ever present in the League during that period.”

The FA will now embark on a period of consultation with all stakeholders in English football with the stated aim of introducing these changes over a phased four-season period so they are fully in force by the start of the 2019-2020 season.

Dyke added: “In 2014, just 23 English players were playing Champions League football. That compares with 78 Spanish players, 55 from Germany and even 51 from Brazil – and the numbers will only get worse. If we want to maintain a national side capable of competing against the world’s best, we need change.

“As the body responsible for all of English football, it’s The FA’s duty to create as many opportunities as possible for young home grown talent to compete at the highest level.

“This is not simply because it will increase the pool of quality players available to the England manager, but because the development of genuine, local talent is fundamental to the sustainability of our clubs and the health of our national game.

“These proposals will ensure that the letter of the law around home grown players matches the spirit in which they were first conceived. We want the whole of the English game to support these proposals.”

The England Commission identified four key areas which were contributing to a shortage of top quality English players breaking through to the top tier of club football. These were:

  • A lack of quality coaching.
    An absence of quality facilities at grassroots level.
    A lack of opportunities for home grown players to play competitive first team football between the ages of 18 and 21.
    The regulation of the English players market’s effectiveness in preserving the desired balance of British, EU and non-EU players.
They insist on living in denial . . .

Their philosophy of Football . . . and the way they approach the game. . .technically inept. Just crisp passing is not enough. Their game is too predictable and can be marked out by opposing teams[/list]

I would like to see this implemented in the very near future. About 3 in the QPS. One in Aranguez. Constantine Park in Puna. Eddie Hart in Tacaraigua. Fiver Rivers, Dabadie. Arima Velodrome, Sangre Grande, Toco. Tobago.  Couva next to Ato. Changuanas, Caroni. The FIFA center that is proposed next to Mannie Ramjohn should have one. Princess Town, LaBrea, Point, Siparia, Rio Claro, Mayaro

Breds, I read where the EPL will be sharing with the lower clubs some of the 1 billion they got from the tv deal. TTFa will be lucky if they get 1 million TT dollars from  local sponsors.

Just FYI... the new regulations are in effect. Nations must be in top 50 over last two years to qualify for work permit.
Unfortunate for Austin



Jamaica’s Rudy Austin has to leave UK under FA’s new work permit rules
UK Guardian


http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/jul/29/rudy-austin-jamaican-fa-work-permit-rules-leeds-sheffield-wednesday

Rudy Austin’s agent has little hope of a successful appeal after Sheffield Wednesday’s attempt to sign the midfielder was dashed by the Football Association’s new work permit rules.

The Jamaica international Austin, 30, was released by Leeds United at the end of last season and Wednesday had appeared to have won the race for his signature. But Austin, who spent three seasons at Leeds and turned down a £500,000 move to Wigan Athletic in January, will be forced to uproot his family as he no longer qualifies for a work permit under the FA’s new regulations.

“For Rudy this is very traumatic,” said Austin’s agent, Darryl Powell. “We had agreed a deal in principle with Sheffield Wednesday, who were going to make him one of their best paid players, if not the best and that was going to be on a three-year contract.

“Unfortunately the appeal process does not really work any more. If you spend in excess of £10m on fees and salary you can bypass it. But other than that there’s not much chance, even though he’s right at the top-end of the pay scale and would make such a good contribution to life in the UK.”

Austin, signed by Leeds from the Norwegian side SK Brann in 2012, played a key role for Jamaica in their run to Sunday’s Gold Cup final in Philadelphia, where they lost 3-1 to the seven-times winners, Mexico.

“He came back into England two days before his work permit and visa expires, which is midnight on Thursday,” Powell said. “Under the new rules a player’s country of origin has to be in the top 50 in Fifa’s rankings over the last two years and Jamaica was in the top 75.

“His little boy, who is two, was born in England and Rudy and his wife want to make their home here. He was two years away from being naturalised but now he’ll have to leave the UK.”

Powell said there were possibilities for Austin with MLS clubs in the US and there had also been interest from Turkey. “It’s very sad really,” Powell added. “Over half of the clubs in the Championship would have taken Rudy on at the right level. We’d agreed a deal with Bolton in March but that could not be concluded due to their financial situation.”

So even if you had a work permit before, once it ends you have to apply again under new rules?
Why don't they just allow a renewal?
They should only apply the rules to first time applications.
Their leagues going to suffer.

Breds, that is the people rule, we have to abide by it. When we make our rule, others should abide by it also.

the pfl and local players should focus on self improvement and trying to help the pfl grow and get stronger, so they don't have to rely on outsiders to develop them...

the mindset needs to change...

The pro is about 10 yrs old(correct me) and has been pretty much an independent entity within football. Even though it is sanctioned by TTFA, it has not had any roadblocks set by the special advisor. But it has not been able to attract sponsorship also. Most of the clubs depend on govt subventions or else is cleaners. Indirectly it is govt sponsored league.
