Penrith Development Team get 2nd Chance after Rules Mix Up

[A]ll seemed lost for Penrith AFC Development after Sundays League Cup Quarter Final tie against Sir Tom Finney Development.

After a very close and competitive 90 mins the game finished all square at 2-2 with Penrith’s goals coming from Sarah Smith and debutant Clare Almond.

Into extra time it was Sir Tom Finney who took the initiative and pulled clear as Penrith heads went down. The score after extra time was 6-2 to Sir Tom Finney and that was that. Or so we thought.

However information came through on Monday for the League Committee saying that both teams had inadvertently broken the rules. After 90 mins the game should have gone straight to penalties and not to extra time. The League Committee has therefore ordered the game to be replayed this Sunday at Frenchfields 2pm KO.
