Stratford Town have today been fined and deducted a total of three points for fielding an ineligible player, meaning the delayed Southern League Premier, Central Division play-offs can now go ahead on Monday 6 May.
King’s Lynn will face Stratford at the Walks Stadium with a 3pm kick-off, whilst Stourbridge meet Alvechurch at the War Memorial Athletic ground in the other semi-final at the same time.
Coalville Town who could have replaced Stratford Town in the play-off’s ultimately agreed that the punishment handed out was a correct one.
Reacting to the decision a representative for Coalville Town said, “Stratford have been deducted 3 points and have been given a fine for fielding an ‘unregistered’ player, this means we are still two points off them and go back to the beach.
“The punishment is fair and we wish all four teams the best of luck in the play-off’s”.
