Issue City could move up a place after Torquay United (erm… no, Hereford) field unregistered player

As told by Michael Wood

Sometimes mistakes happen. To err is to be human.

This article talks about Torquay fielding a player against Hereford which could cause them problems. The player – of course – played against Torquay for Hereford.

So Mother, Father, kindly disregard this letter.

Wrong

Bradford City could move up a place in League Two after the news that Paul Buckle’s Torquay United fielded an unregistered player could see the Devon side fined three points.

Striker Jake Robinson, who is on loan from Shrewsbury Town, is the player in question and after scoring last night against Hereford it was discovered that the player should not have been on the field having not been registered in time.

The Gulls have offered a mea culpa but are expected to be given the standard penalty in such situations – a fine of three points – which would move them from thirty three to thirty and thus put them under the Bantams.
