Manchester City Women has been charged by The FA

Manchester City Women FC has been charged with fielding an ineligible player in The FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup.

It is alleged that the player was not registered with The FA WSL in the match against Sunderland on Saturday 15 August 2015.

It is therefore alleged that the club is in breach of League Cup Rule 5 (Competition Rule 26.5) for fielding an ineligible player.

The club has until 17 September to respond to the charge.

As a result, this weekend’s FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup quarter final fixture between Arsenal and Manchester City [Sunday 13 September] has been postponed.
