Both Cammell Laird and Alsager Town have been expelled from this season’s NWCFL MEN United Cup after fielding ineligible players in their 3rd round wins over Runcorn Town and AFC Liverpool respectively.
The NWCFL confirmed the registration rules had been changed this season to mirror those of the FA Vase and urged club secretaries to be more vigilant of player registrations.
Ironically both teams were due to play each other in the 4th round so no other fixtures will be affected.
AFC Liverpool will now host Runcorn Town in Round 4.
However the NWCFL have confirmed there is one more club under investigation, and any other announcement will be made in due course.
