Carmarthen Town in FAW ineligible player charge
JD Welsh Premier League outfit Carmarthen Town have been charged by the Football Association of Wales for allegedly playing an ineligible player.
The FAW has charged the club with the disciplinary matter relating to the playing of David Vincent, who was suspended as of December 28 2018 for accumulating five yellow cards.
The matter relates to Carmarthen’s 2-0 win over Llanelli Town on New Year’s Day.
The full statement from the association said:
The statement reads: “The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has charged Carmarthen Town AFC under FAW Rule 38.1.6 and Welsh Premier League Rule 18 with allegedly playing an ineligible player during their 2-0 win over Llanelli Town AFC on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
“The charge relates to the playing of David Vincent, who was suspended as and from December 28, 2018 for one match for the accumulation of five yellow cards.
“Carmarthen have seven business days until January 16, to respond to the charge. The matter will be heard by an FAW Disciplinary Panel at the earliest possible opportunity.”
The charge comes as Carmarthen prepare for their final game of phase one against Connah’s Quay Nomads at Richmond Park on Saturday 11 January for a 7:30pm kick off.
The Deesiders will then again travel to Carmarthen two weeks later to face the Old Gold in the JD Welsh Cup fourth round.
Carmarthen will spend phase two in the bottom six, having taken 21 points from 21 games so far with five wins, six draws, and 10 losses.
