Minimum number of appearanced to win a medal?

Post by ros_brodie » Tue Jun 05, 2007 2:48 pm

Hi there

My understanding is that a player has to appear in at least ten matches for the League-winning club, in order to qualify for a League winners' medal. I'd like to know:

* Has this minimum number of ten always been the case?
* Is it a ruling set by the Scottish FA, or UEFA, or which organisation?

Thanks,
Ros.

Hi Ros and welcome to the forum.

Apparently the commonly held belief of a minimum of ten appearances no longer applies - in the Scottish Football League at least.

The number of medals is set by the appropriate governing body - the various leagues, not the FAs, UEFA or FIFA. However it appears that clubs have freedom to decide how to allocate medals individually.

See this thread for greater discussion on this topic - particularly the contribution from skyline drifter.

Thanks for this. So I assume there is no minimum set for the Scottish Premier League? If a club wins a trophy they just decide which of their players is entitled to a medal?

The SPL is a different body from the SFL. Whether their policy on medals is different I don't know. You could try e-mailing them but they are very poor at responding to requests for information.
