This could herald a big change from last season, when we frequently struggled to name three substitutes, never mind five.

I already posted on the SC Facebook about this but this is a bad rule change that favours the richest clubs who can pay for the biggest squads. I didn't like it when it was made permanent in the Premier League and I like it even less filtering down to this level.

As well as the rich teams having the biggest squads, part of football is supposed to be that teams tire, fitness is important and that helps exploit space later in the game. A planned replacement of half the outfielders with subs - or 'finishers' to use Gareth Southgate's name for them - is a crappy rugbification of the sport.

As for Ks I'm sure we'll have five subs in August and September but I'd be amazed if at some point this season there isn't a budget cut.

Totally agree.

It’s also another change which hastens the gradual change of non-league football players from “lads who are really good at football but can’t turn pro” into “lads who go to the gym a lot and aren’t actually all that good at football”.

I’m astonished by how bad the standard of close control and first touch are these days in the Isthmian League. A lot of the players just aren’t actually that good any more sadly - and it feels like this will make it even worse.

Do we know if the clubs were informed and a vote taken?
