Emirates FA Cup - FA statement

22 November 2023

The following statement has been released by the Football Association this afternoon concerning our Emirates FA Cup second round opponents.

''A Professional Game Board Sub-Committee has removed Barnsley from the 2023/24 Emirates FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player during their First Round Proper Replay against Horsham on Tuesday 14 November 2023.

The FA alleged that the player was ineligible for this Replay, as he was not correctly registered and eligible for the original First Round Proper match on Friday 3 November 2023, which constitutes a breach of FA Cup Rule 103.

Barnsley admitted this charge and acknowledged that the breach had occurred. The Sub-Committee’s members ordered that Barnsley be removed from the competition, and that Horsham be awarded the tie and progression to the Second Round Proper.

Horsham will now play away to Sutton United in the Second Round Proper on Saturday 2 December 2023.''

Should this give rise to any changes in our arrangements for our second round tie, which will now be against Horsham, we will announce them as soon as they are known but tickets for Sutton supporters, and pre-match hospitality, remain on sale and can be bought here for tickets and here for hospitality, and any tickets already sold remain valid. For any ticketing enquiries email tickets@suttonunited.net.
