Histon and Kidderminster Harriers deducted points

Jan 25th, 2011

Histon and Kidderminster Harriers have both suffered an immediate five-point deduction in the Blue Square Bet Premier. Both clubs had decided not to appeal after the Football Conference found the pair guilty of submitting misleading financial information.

According to the BBC’s website, the teams were charged in December for breaches of the Conference’s financial reporting initiative, covering periods of the 2009/10 season. On top of their points deductions both were hit with £5,000 fines, which are suspended for two years.

Mansfield Town were also put under a transfer embargo for issues surrounding a VAT return submitted in 2009. They will not be able to register any new players until they resolve the matter with HM Revenue and Customs.
