Personally I would kick them out of the league cup as well…
Bradford City have been kicked out of the FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player, sending Brentford through to the third round.
The Bantams fielded on-loan Newcastle defender Curtis Good in last Friday’s 1-1 draw with the Bees without registering him by the noon deadline.
Their replay on 18 December will be cancelled, with Brentford now visiting Bury or Southend in round three.
City have until 17:00 GMT on Friday to appeal.
Bradford’s cup joy in 2012-13
Bradford have not lost a cup match this season. They are set to face Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup, and have also qualified for the Northern Area semi-finals of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Good, 19, joined the Bantams in November and made his debut in the Brentford match. He also played in the 2-0 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Port Vale this week.
A club statement read: “The nature of the charge is the playing of one of our loan players deemed ineligible due to the late submission for permission for him to play.
“The error was of an administrative technical nature and not one to intentionally break competition rules.
“We presented a case of mitigation to the FA on Thursday, 6 December, however the FA panel chose to enforce the full powers of its jurisdiction and have removed the club from the FA Cup competition.”
The Football Association said in a statement: “Bradford City did not have the necessary written permission for Curtis Good to play in the competition, whilst on loan from Newcastle United, by the 12pm deadline on Friday November 30 prior to the fixture that evening.”7 December 2012 at 4:29 pm #97806DavidPlayer
