Wednesday’s Step 3 play-off semi-final between Kings Lynn Town and Stratford Town has had to be postponed while The FA investigate Straford Town for allegedly playing an ineligible player during the season.
The maximum points that they could be deducted is 12 points which would see Coalville Town promoted into the play-off position, depending on the outcome, and the number of games the player has played.
The final of the play-off’s is due to be played on Monday but this may have to be put back depending on the outcome.
A statement from the club says, “We have received a letter from the FA on the 29th April regards an alleged ineligible player and potential points deduction. The FA asked us to supply relevant information by lunchtime April 30th which we will comply with. We await the outcome from the FA and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and we hope a swift conclusion. The Club will make no further comment until we have heard further from the FA.”
