Victorious Bradford City women told to replay semi-final

First published in General by

Bradford City Reserves are training tomorrow night for a League Cup semi-final at Thackley on Sunday they thought they had been awarded.

They are due to face Nottingham Forest, who had been expelled by the FA Women's Premier League for failing to fulfil the original fixture due to transport problems - but were reinstated by the FA appeals committee.

Having been denied that cup final place outright, City, who finished their season in first place, are entitled to feel aggrieved and could yet lose out on the title if Forest take four points from their last two games.

Last week Forest failed to raise a side for a trip to Newcastle but the FA have given no indication on their 'Full-Time' website whether they will be docked points, and they have been unavailable for comment.

Way to go FA! Loads of dedicated people trying to get everyone to take the Women's game seriously and they are let down by an inept governing body and a club treating it like a pub league! Even in a pub league you forfeit the points for not turning up.
