Newton Abbot expelled from SWPL


Newton Abbot FC have been expelled from the South West Peninsula League after failing to fulfil their fixtures.

The side ran into financial trouble last month and their players went on strike in protest over unpaid expenses.

An SWPL statement read: "All results, points, goals etc relating to Newton Abbot and the fixtures they have played this season are expunged."

Players can play elsewhere once they have paid the league a 25 fee to cover the club's fines and expenses.

"Players who have not paid by 24 November will be reported to Devon FA who will add a fee of their own to the fine and suspend the player sine die [indefinitely] from playing in any competition," the statement went on to say.
