League statement: points deduction

Cleethorpes Town have been deducted twelve points by the EVO-STIK League for playing an ineligible player.

The EVO-STIK League South club accepted a charge of breaching League Rule 6.9 after being found guilty at a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.

The club was also fined £100 before officials informed the EVO-STIK League on Saturday that they were waiving the right to appeal and would accept the sanction for failing to get approval for a loan player from the Football Association in accordance with the requirements of League Rule 6.4.1. and subsequently fielding him in seven fixtures.

No costs were awarded against the club in the case, one of several heard by the panel in Barnsley. Details of the other cases will be released in due course with clubs having 14 days to appeal.

The EVO-STIK League South table will be updated before midnight on Saturday 3 February 2018 to reflect the sanction and there will be no further statement from the EVO-STIK League on this matter.
