St Joseph’s deducted points 

St Joseph are reported to have been deducted their three points from the match against Manchester 62, with the latter also being awarded a 3-0 scoreline.

The decision claimed Manchester 62 sources came after st Joseph fielded a player who was carded during the match against Angels and should have had a one match suspension. St Joseph were due to play Glacis in a reserve match next but did not field a team, forfeiting the match, allegedly. The suspension was therefore not enforced and would have been carried into the next St Joseph match which was against Manchedter 62.

Following the tabling of the rules before the GFA the player was found to be ineligible and Manchester 62 were awarded the points.

The decision changes the league table with Manchester going above Britannia and giving them further hope of not sinking further into the relegation zone.

In the meantime players who received yellow cards during the Lincoln v Gibraltar United match have received a two match sanction, instead of the one match, due to the manner in which the cards were deliberately sought for. An appeal is expected after other teams are known to have done the same to ensure players were eligible for crucial matches or sanction-risk free.
