As a result of an administrative oversight involving the registration of a player with the Evo-Stik Southern League, Division One Central…
….club Chalfont St Peter has been fined and given a massive FIFTEEN point deduction.
The player involved signed with the club towards the end of last year before moving on to another Evo-Stik Southern League club in January.
On the back of that transfer, the league ascertained that the original registration form was incorrect. As a result of this oversight, the club has, in accordance with league rules, been fined and given a points deduction for those games in which the player was involved.
Chairman Denis Mair said: “It is a regret that an off-field failure should have such an impact and our apologies go to the players who have performed so wonderfully this season and to the supporters who have followed them. We now look forward to a strong finish to the season.”
The league has also deducted Cirencester Town one point and Winchester City three points – both for fielding ineligible players!
