Town Removed from Senior Cup
It has been confirmed this morning that Hucknall Town have been expelled from the Nottinghamshire Senior Cup for playing a player who should have been suspended.
The 1-0 win at Dunkirk saw Gary Ricketts take the field for Town, but he should have been serving a one game ban. However, the club received notification of the ban three days after the Dunkirk game, from the FA, but following a meeting with the County it has been confirmed that Town are out of this season`s Senior Cup.
It`s disappointing news obviously but it`s a decision that we have to accept.
