Why Fifa has banned me from playing for Under-15 group

A 15-year-old Scottish footballer has been told by Fifa that he can not play over the border in England because of international transfer rules.

Louis Scott has fallen foul of your guidelines developed to tackle the practice of European clubs poaching Under 16s from Africa and South America.

He's permitted to play for his school but was denied to sign for Cadley in Preston by the governing physique of football, due to the fact his parents live in Scotland, whilst he attends a boarding college in Lancashire.

Louis described the Fifa rules to five live Daily's Adrian Chiles as "ridiculous" and feels it is unfair that he can only train together with the nearby amateur club.

"It's really ridiculous, fairly strange. Plenty of boys must come from all over the world to play football in England and their parents do not reside in England. It is certain they're registered, it's unfair."

The BBC asked each Fifa and also the FA to comment. Fifa says it had a request in the FA and replied by referring the FA to the applicable provisions of your Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players and relevant jurisprudence from the competent deciding authority, ie the Sub-Committee on the Players' Status Committee.
