Homegrown Players – A Club can spend up to a collective $200,000 on 4 Australian Players aged 23 or younger that have come through the Club’s youth system. Any payments to such Players above the $200,000 allowance are included in the Club’s Salary Cap
So that would be Grant, Calver, Ivanovic and Devlin. Take the bottom $200k off.
Loyalty Players – A Club can spend up to a collective $200,000 across any number of Players that have given 5 or more consecutive seasons of service to the Club.
So that would mean Brosque next season, and O’Neill and Milos the year after if, for example, Milos goes back in the cap. No-one else makes the 5 year cut yet.
Mature Age Rookie – A Club can register an Australian Player that is aged 21 or older who last played in an Australian competition (eg. National Premier Leagues) and has not played in a fully professional league for at least 18 months
I don’t think anyone counts here. Tratt wasn’t away from the HAL that long was he?
Scholarship Players – Each Club can contract up to 6 under 20 Australian Players on the national minimum wage. Any payments above the national minimum wage to these Players are included in the Club’s Salary Cap
Not sure how this one interacts with the “Homegrown Players” group. But the other group can include those over 20, so maybe Ivanovic and Devlin come in here. We have a few guys who were 20 at the start of the season, so do they fit in here? (e.g. Buhagiar)
