    2008-12-30 00:44:27     Xinhua

Giantkillers Droylsden have been expelled from the FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player, reports said here on Modnay.

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, the PA said.

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

The sub-committee also ruled that the FA Cup prize fund payment of30,000 pounds 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.
