Vanarama Conference: Forest Green deducted three points



Forest Green of the Vanarama Conference Prem have been deducted three points and fined £500 for fielding an ineligible player in their win over Southport.

Rovers beat the Sandgro­unders 1-0 on Saturday, 9 August - the opening day of the Conference season.

At a hearing in Birmingham, they accepted the charge and offered to replay the game, a request that was rejected by the Conference panel.

The decision is subject to their right of appeal to the Football Association.

The deduction will see the club move down from ninth to 13th in the Conference table.
