Ilkeston Football Club’s new season is on hold following a breach of League rules.
Evo-Stik Northern Premier League are saying on their website:
“Following a breach of the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League’s Rules and Regulations, the Licence issued to Ilkeston FC has been suspended with effect from 5pm on Wednesday 10 August 2016.
“The club will not be able to participate in any footballing activity from this date until such time as all of the breaches have been resolved to the satisfaction of the EVO-STIK NPL.
“Ilkeston FC do have the right of appeal to the Football Association and the EVO-STIK NPL will not be making any further comments at this stage.”
The Robins opening league match against Stafford Rangers this coming Saturday is now in doubt.
