Scottish Women’s Football were advised by the Perform and Win Committee, commonly referred to as the League Management Committee (LMC), that they had considered a breach of the following Competition Rule by Ayr United:
Rule 20(c) Clubs will not be permitted to move their players from the SWPL and/or Championship to the Scottish Women’s Football League or vice versa without the written approval from the Management Committee.
This breach occurred during the Championship South match on Sunday 22nd August between Ayr United and Stenhousemuir.
The Perform and Win Committee determined that the fixture be awarded 3-0 to Stenhousemuir and Ayr United were issued with a fine of £50. The results and league tables will be updated accordingly.
SWF acknowledges Ayr United’s right to appeal and will make no further comment at this time.
