Barnsley kicked out of FA Cup


Aug 4, 2023
Barnsley fielded an ineligible player in the replay.

Although the third tier club have not named the player, Football Association rules state only players who are eligible for the initial tie can feature in any replay in the FA Cup.

Forward Aiden Marsh was on loan at National League side York City when the first game took place on 3 November, before being recalled and then starting in the replay at Horsham on 14 November.

Step 3 side Horsham will now play Sutton United in the 2nd Round.

That’s the sort of mistake you find in non-league, not from a full-time paid employee
