Beverley Town Football Club have been throw a cup ‘life line’ after they were reinstated in the East Riding County FA Senior Cup following a technicality.
In November town were dumped out the competition when they were beaten 2-0 by East Yorkshire Carnegie at Dene Park.
Town boss, Rich Jagger explained how his side got reinstated into the competition, he said;
“Following last month’s East Riding senior cup tie between East Yorkshire Carnegie and Beverley Town, it was alleged that East Yorkshire Carnegie fielded a cup tied player, who had played in the previous round of the cup.”
“The East Riding County FA have subsequently contacted us to inform us that the breach of rules has been confirmed, and that East Yorkshire Carnegie have been removed from the competition.”
“Beverley Town have been reinstated into the competition and now progress into the quarter finals in place of East Yorkshire Carnegie.”
A cup that has proved difficult for the club to win, Town will now go into the hat for the quarter final draw.
Jagger will be hoping his side can avoid some of the big hitters as they look to extend their somewhat fortunate cup run.
Since their defeat to East Yorkshire Carnegie, Town have enjoyed a good run of form in the league that included a victory against their local rivals Walkington AFC.
However their match last weekend against North Ferriby Athletic was called off due to a frozen pitch, while their Humber Premier League fixture this weekend, away to Sculcoates Armatures, has also been postponed.
That means Town have slipped to sixth place in the league, but do have three games in hand on the current league leaders Chalk Lane.
