Debt Recovery

​Cornwall FA Debt Recovery Scheme

Sadly every season players leave clubs without paying their debts.

The leaves some clubs either unable to pay debts to leagues, or to fold owing money.

The Cornwall FA debt recovery scheme is the clubs’ and leagues’ opportunity to try to recoup money owed by players. All affiliated clubs and leagues may ask us to issue a Sine Die Suspension against individuals that owe them money.

The Cornwall County Football Association is required to operate a system to collect debts on behalf of affiliated clubs, affiliated leagues and other Associations.


Football debts are defined as those costs arising directly from football activity, and as such would include disciplinary costs (e.g. fines), match costs (e.g. match fees) and playing expenses (e.g. pitch hire).

Incidental costs (e.g. fund raising activities, club subscriptions) do not fall within the scope of Football Debt Recovery.

Fines from discipline cases (cautions, dismissals, misconduct charges) and match fees

Kit/Equipment, Club subscriptions/Signing on fees/Internal club fines, Lottery or any other fund raising schemes, End of season trip costs and Club Debts.
