Division Four East Table Change

The SYSCL very much regret that unfortunately Wentworth will not be promoted into Division 3 in 2016. The reason being Wombwell played an ineligible player on Sunday 13th September 2015 in the game v Whiston Forge. The SYSCL Management Committee has decided that this was in contravention of League Rule 30. The game will now be awarded to Whiston and they will receive 5 points, Wombwell 0 points (7 points deducted), also a 7 points penalty for the start on the 2016 season. The award of 5 points takes Whiston Forge into 3rd place in the Division.   

I would like to make clear that Whiston Forge were no way involved in this matter.
