Giantkillers Droylsden have been expelled from the FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player.

The Blue Square North side had beaten Chesterfield 2-1 but defender Sean Newton, who scored both goals for the Manchester side, should have been serving a suspension for picking up five bookings.

An FA Cup protest sub-committee met on Monday and ordered that Droylsden be removed from the competition and League Two side Chesterfield will now play Ipswich in the third round on Saturday.

The sub-committee also ruled that the FA Cup prize fund payment of £30,000 should be redirected to Chesterfield.

Any appeal against the decision must be lodged with the FA by 9am on Tuesday and the appeal would heard on Wednesday.
