Mossley have confirmed that they have been expelled from the FA Trophy.

The expulsion is for an alleged breach of Rule 15(i)(i), which states:

A player on a temporary (loan) transfer is ineligible to compete in the Challenge Trophy Competition unless permission to do so is given by the lending club in writing and a copy is received by The Association by 12 noon on the Friday prior to the date fixed for playing the round.

The Lilywhites had beaten Cleethorpes Town 4-2 in the preliminary round. They had subsequently drawn Morpeth Town away in first round qualifying.

Mossley say the decision is subject to appeal.
