FELIXSTOWE & Walton have been booted out of the Suffolk Premier Cup for fielding an ineligible player.

It means Ipswich Town have been re-instated, despite the fact the Seasiders beat Ipswich Town 2-1 on the night.

A statement from Suffolk FA read.

‘In line with the rules of the Suffolk County FA Cup Competitions, Felixstowe & Walton United FC have been removed from the 2012/13 Premier Cup and Ipswich Town FC have been reinstated to the competition.

‘Felixstowe & Walton United FC played an ineligible player in their match against Ipswich Town FC on the 8th January and have therefore forfeited the match.

‘Situations such as this highlight the need for clubs to maintain meticulous records of their players’ misconduct and to manage the disciplinary issues within their clubs very carefully.

‘It is the Suffolk FA’s responsibility to govern the grassroots game across Suffolk and enforce the rules accurately and consistently.’

  • What you havn't said is that this is purely down to a Suffolk FA mistake. As they are never wrong the club must pay by being removed ! Ipswich Town should do the right thing & not take up their second chance but...........
