I ask because when we were last at Wembley we couldn't play our loaned keeper.
That was in the Conference where contracts ended at the end of April, therefore the loan had ended, in the league they run until the end of June (usually ).
Not quite right, in the conference they were 93 day (maximum) 'emergency' loans where as now they are full or half season transfer window loans. The forest loan keeper could not play at Wembley because his 93 day loan ran out in the week running up to the final. If the final was a week earlier or we had signed him a week later he could have played.
That's set my mind at rest. We obviously looked a weaker side when we played the cup game a couple of weeks ago.
