If it was returned for any reason the club would get an email immediately with a reason for this, e.g. contract not signed, and there would be a link on the email to take you straight back to this page to upload a corrected version following the same process outlined through the previous steps.

Don't forget a player must also hold a CONFIRMED registration as well as a CONFIRMED contract on COMET to be eligible to play.

Please make sure both the registration and the contract are at CONFIRMED status before selecting a player to play.
