Only a week ago, Purton Men’s C team breathed a sigh of relief as league champions Lechlade B managed to draw against fellow relegation battlers Pewsey C to send Pewsey down and keep Purton up.
Mens C captain Glynn Stevens was informed yesterday however, that Lechlade had fielded an ineligible player gifting an extra 2 sets to Pewsey making the final score of their last match 6-2 in Pewsey’s favour which now keeps Pewsey up, and sends Purton down. Lechlade still win the league and are relatively unpunished.
The club will be making contact with the league regarding the situation, but however unfair it may feel for the C team, it doesn’t look like a lot can be done.
