BOSTON Town and King’s Lynn have been told to replay their United Counties League Premier Division fixture... after the Linnets fielded an ineligible player.

Rob Hughes was incorrectly included in the Lynn side as they league leaders beat the Poachers 1-0 at Tattershall Road in October.

But despite the player being suspended, the league have said there were mitigating circumstances surrounding his inclusion.

The Linnets have been handed a three-point deduction, but have been offered the chance to win them back with a rematch.

No date has yet been fixed for the replayed game.
