FOOTBALL CONFERENCE STATEMENT
Wednesday Dec 19, 2012
HINCKLEY UNITED v BISHOPS STORTFORD FIXTURE
Blue Square Bet North - Hinckley United v Bishops Stortford on Tuesday 18 December 2012
Hinckley United FC informed the Football Conference by email at 9.16pm on Monday 17 December that it had only 9 fit/available players for the following evening's match against Bishops Stortford FC. The Competition responded by seeking the Club's proposals to overcome the solution, adding the issue would be addressed immediately the Office opened the following morning.
Further communication followed this morning but a request for medical evidence, which the Club was advised would enable the Competition to consider three further registrations, was unfulfilled when the Club informed the Conference Office it (Hinckley United FC) had postponed the fixture as it was unable to fulfil the engagement. Hinckley United FC also advised the Conference it had informed its opponents of its decision.
Hinckley United FC will now be charged with failing to fulfil an engagement and it will have seven days in which to respond to the charge.
