Yeovil Town’s battle against relegation got an unexpected boost on Wednesday as Gateshead were deducted a point after being found guilty of fielding an ineligible player.

In a statement, the National League said;

The Independent Panel ruled Gateshead were deemed guilty of one breach of Rule 6.9 for failing to ensure all players were not under suspension prior to participating in a match – therefore fielding an ineligible player.

The Panel concluded that one point gained should be deducted from the Club’s record from playing season 2022/23 and a fine of £750 has additionally been issued.

Gateshead sat level on points with the Glovers prior to this announcement, but sat one place below Yeovil on goal difference.

This decision drops them to 32 points and down to 21st in the table.
