CLUB STATEMENT | FA Youth Cup tie to be replayed

Following a protest from AFC Fylde, Chester FC has been informed The FA Youth Cup Third Qualifying Round tie that took place on Friday, 14 October must be replayed.

The FA Youth Committee considered the protest and determined that the kicks from the penalty mark had not been completed in accordance with the Rules of the Competition as the Laws of the Game had not been applied correctly by the referee, and has ordered that the result should not stand and the match should be replayed in its entirety.

While we are disappointed in the outcome and events which contributed to the error, we respect the decision of The FA Youth Committee.

The replayed fixture will take place at the Deva Stadium on Wednesday, 26 October at 7.45pm. Admission prices remain the same, at £3 for Adults and £1 for Concessions/U18’s.
