Sussex County League Division One club Rye lost 1-0 away to Molten Spartan South Midlands League Division One outfit Amersham in round two of the FA Vase on Saturday.
But Rye have since made the complaint and paid the accompanying £100 charge. Although no further details of the complaint can be revealed at this stage, if successful it could result in the match outcome being overturned.
Amersham, incidentally, were handed a home tie against South Park in this morning’s draw for the last sixty-four. That match is due to be played on Saturday, December 8th.
South Park are seventh in the Combined Counties League Premier Division and reached FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round before losing to Ryman League Premeir Division side Metropolitan Police.
As for Rye’s match at Amersham, the only goal came during the first half when dangerman Shane Thomas was given too much space to fire past Josh Willis in the away goal.
Rye threw the kitchen sink at their opponents during the second half, but a combination of poor finishing and good goalkeeping denied them an equaliser. Willis made four or five top drawer saves at the other end, though, to keep Rye in it.
