The Football Club were informed late Friday afternoon 2nd October 2015 by the Football Association of the need to investigate the chronological order of events relating to the registration of a player having taken part in this season's F.A Cup Competition's previous two qualifying rounds. We are co-operating fully with the F.A's investigation but feel it would be wrong to comment further on the matter until the investigation is complete. There will be a further statement in due course.

The Club remains fully focused on our F.A Trophy tie AWAY Vs Lancaster City on Saturday 3rd October, with the F.A Trophy a competition in that we have a long and proud history and association with.
