Penybont FC Reinstated to Welsh Cup!
     
 
  Last Saturday, our 1st Team faced Caldicot Town in the 2nd Round of the Welsh Cup at their Jubilee Road ground.

Caldicot Town throughly outplayed Penybont and recorded a 3 - 0 win, but news came to the Penybont club after the game that Caldicot Town had played an ineligible player, but unfortunately for Caldicot Town, he was signed after the original conference date of November the 9th which was the original date of the tie. Unfortunately, the weather was bad for the 9th and the game was postponed for a week.

Penybont FC knew of this rule due to resigning of 2 players, but they were ineligible to play in the tie as they were signed after the 9th of November date.

Here is the official statement from the Welsh FA: -

The Football Association of Wales Domestic Committee met this morning (Friday 22nd November 2013) to discuss a protest received from Penybont FC, against the eligibility of a player in the rearranged FAW Welsh Cup Round 2 match, which finished Caldicot Town 3-0 Penybont FC on Saturday 16th November 2013.

The Committee found Caldicot Town guilty of breaking FAW Welsh Cup Rule 19h, which states;

In all rounds of the Competition a player must have been a registered member of his Club by 5:00pm on the last working day before the Conference Date of the Competition. In the case of postponed, drawn or replayed matches only those players shall be allowed to play who were eligible at the Conference Date.

Although sympathetic to the situation, the FAW decided that they had to disqualify Caldicot Town from this seasonís FAW Welsh Cup for breaching Rule 19h. As a consequence, Penybont FC has been reinstated.

Penybont FC, of Welsh League division 1, will now face Welsh Premier League side Airbus UK Broughton in Round 3, which will be played on Saturday 7th November 2013.
