It's a terrific idea to read the documentation for features you're unfamiliar with.

As the MySQL manual page for triggers makes clear, a Trigger may not execute UPDATE, INSERT or DELETE commands on the table on which it's defined, and it must refer to that table's column values as NEW.colname and OLD.colname.

Is this what you mean?

drop trigger if exists playreg_after_ins;
delimiter go
create trigger playreg_after_ins after insert on playerreg for each row
  select transferno, transferto, created into @transferno, @club, @updated_on
  from transfers
  where transfers.playerregno = NEW.playerregno;
  if @transferno is not null and @club is not null and @updated_on is not null then
    set NEW.shortcode=@transferno,, NEW.updated_on=@updated_on;
  end if;
delimiter ;

But copying data that already exists is redundant, therefore most always a consequence of a database design error. So long as the playerreg and transfers tables connect via a key, there should never be a need to copy more than the key.
