To reset the line-up, click Edit in the relevant team tab.
Next, click IN PROGRESS.
You will then see the Change status box, asking you to confirm you want to change the status. Enter a reason, e.g. Match postponed – resetting so team can select new line-up and click Yes.
The status of the tab will then show as IN PROGRESS and the club will be able to change their team line-up by removing players by ticking the bin icon next to their name, and selecting players from the Available players list.
