Clubs have the ability through PlayHQ to manage their transfers and permits online, and can find comprehensive how-to guides in the transfers and permits section of PlayCricket support.  There is concern that clubs can register new players without a clearance on PlayHQ.  In cases where players have played for another other club and a Transfer (clearance) would normally be required, an email should be sent to the players former club ensuring that player is OK to play for the new club (doesn't owe money) - the SMCA Administrator should be copied in on this email.
