Statement from Berks & Bucks FA:

“Following the Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup Semi Final between Marlow FC v Slough Town FC on 26th March 2019 an appeal was lodged by Slough Town FC regarding the eligibility of two Marlow FC players. 

“Upon investigation, a Football Operations Disciplinary Committee concluded that Marlow FC were found to be in breach of eligibility rules and, in accordance with competition rules, have been removed from the competition and the tie awarded to Slough Town FC.

"Under competition rules, protests must be submitted within three days of the match or the occurrence to which they refer. Berks & Bucks FA can confirm that no other formal protests in relation to alleged breaches of eligibility rules have been received in this season's competition.

“As a result, and pending an appeal, Slough Town FC have been reinstated into the competition and will face Reading FC in the Final.”
