Intention to play

What is this intention to play form all about? Can you go to another club before the season starts if you've signed this.

You can as long as you have a clearance, usually means you forfeit your deposit that most clubs make you pay with the intention to play form

saves clubs getting hit with forfeit fines after entering a team in a comp and people bail.

you can train without a clearance but do not play without a clearance - will be penalized

I don't believe the form locks you into anything and I dont think it requires a signature? It is more so that at the internal trials the club have an idea of who is coming and can prepare a list beforehand to mark off on the day or allocate teams. If everyone just turns up then it is much harder to get names, details etc.. I have seen players come to internal trials and then still move clubs.

As far as I understand it, the only thing locking you to a club for a season is making an appearance in a game.
If you haven't played a competitive fixture in the new season, you should be fine to move.

the form is an intention to play not a confirmation of play
