Resolution revealed after FA investigation on Forest Green


Following an FA investigation, Forest Green have been forced to replay their FA Cup first round tie at Scarborough Athletic on Tuesday, December 12.

This related to the use of an ineligible player in their first round meeting with Scarborough, which required a replay to separate the two sides.

David Horseman’s struggling side were due to visit Blackpool on Saturday afternoon in the second round, but the game was called off the evening before due to an FA investigation.

Forest Green were charged for the offence which constituted a breach of FA Cup Rule 109.

The winner of the fixture will take on the Seasiders the following week on December 19.

A trip to the City Ground to take Premier League outfit Nottingham Forest awaits the eventual winner of the second round game.
