Result overturned after ineligible player used in end-of-season derby

posted in: News

The final table for the 2022 Men’s National League has been adjusted after the result of the round nine game between Christchurch United and Cashmere Technical has been overturned.

NZ Football have announced that the matchday result of a 4-1 win to Christchurch United will now be recorded as a 0-3 loss.

This follows confirmation that Christchurch United mistakenly sent a player onto the pitch as a second-half substitute when he was not on the official team sheet.

“Following the match, the club admitted and acknowledged the mistake,” NZF’s statement says.

The revised result means Cashmere Technical gains three points but remains in seventh place.

Napier City Rovers move up a place, into eighth spot, while Christchurch United drop to ninth.
