Football Conference Statement on Workington FC
 
 
   

An Appeal lodged with the Football Association by Workington FC, against a Football Conference decision to deduct four points from the club’s league table score for fielding an ineligible player, was considered by a Panel of FA Councillors at Wembley on Monday.

The player’s ineligibility arose when the club omitted to lodge with the Football Conference, the appropriate forms to extend the loan of Will Vaulks on 21st October.

The player was fielded in matches on 23rd and 27th October prior to the Competition being able to advise the club of its omission.

Upon the club’s own admission, Workington FC was found guilty of fielding an ineligible player in its matches against Altrincham and Gainsborough Trinity and, in accordance with Competition rule, the Football Conference was obliged to deduct the four points gained in these two matches.

The club appealed against the Conference’s decision on the grounds the Competition ‘reached a decision no reasonable body could have reached’ and on ‘severity of sentence’.

Referring to the rule under which the charge was brought, the FA Appeals Panel emphasised it was a club’s responsibility to ensure the eligibility of its players and, since the sentence imposed by the Conference was mandatory, the sentence could not be considered excessive.

The Appeal was dismissed on both strands.

The club’s league table score, showing the deduction of four points, will be adjusted immediately.
