How to “Borrow” players from other teams within your club on match day

The players, coaches and managers that are available for selection on the electronic match sheet are those that you have mapped to that relevant team via the Dribl web admin system.

There are occasions however that you need to “Borrow” players from other teams within your club on a match day ie call up an under 20s player into the 1st grade team for a match.

To do this simply click on the “+” icon, search for the player you wish to add and add them to the matchsheet for the given match

How to “Borrow” Staff Members from other teams within your club on match day

You can now borrow any registered staff member at your club for any specific match

This is useful perhaps if you have a physio who is not a permanent member of your staff but needs to be allocated to your match sheet just for that specific match day.

Click on the Borrow icon (Top right hand corner) and then select “Borrow Staff”

Final pre match steps: Submit Team / Confirm Team

Once all steps above have completed and you have clicked on Submit team (No later than 30 minutes before kick off)

The final step is to Confirm team (No later than 10 minutes before kick off)

The Confirm Team option will ONLY appear if you have already clicked on the Submit Team option earlier.

BOTH the Home AND Away teams must have both Submitted and Confirmed their teams prior to the designated cut off times prior to kick off to complete the pre match tasks.

Unsubmit Team

If you make any error with your team submission and/or need to make any changes to your team, this can be done by first clicking Unsubmit Team, making the relevant changes and then clicking Submit team again.

NOTE: Once both teams have been confirmed, you will need to ask the opposition to unconfirm your team in order to be able to make any changes. If post cut off times, these changes can only be made by the match official.
