The Portsmouth FA have removed Gosport Borough from this season’s Portsmouth Senior Cup following the postponement of their tie with Havant & Waterlooville.

The match, scheduled for October 25th, was postponed by the club four days before the date of the game.

However, the Portsmouth FA found the club to be in breach of Rule 13e which states a game can only be postponed if a club has a match in another competition that takes precedence.

The Portsmouth FA found in favour of Havant & Waterlooville, who will progress to the next round, after hearing that Gosport’s only senior fixture during that midweek period was a Wyvern Combination fixture the following evening.
