Who at BSHL Took The Fit and Proper Person Test?


The EFL issue a test to all people who are involved with the running of a football club called the Owners and Directors Test (OADT). This is popularly known as the Fit and Proper Person test.

The EFL have a lengthy post online explaining the rules of the OADT here. In short, anyone who is a director of the club or has a role in senior management where they can sign off documents; any person who exercises control over the affairs of the club, along with those appointed to represent them, has to take the OADT.

To pass the OADT, a person has to prove that they are not subject to a “disqualifying condition” such as financial criminal convictions, insolvencies and suspensions by sports governing bodies.

If a person does something that means they will then fail the OADT – for example when Carson Yeung was convicted of money laundering – then they must step away from their position with the club.
