THE Welsh Premier League has issued an official statement to explain a one point deduction for Connah's Quay Nomads:
Connah’s Quay Nomads have been found guilty by a Football Association of Wales Disciplinary Panel of fielding an ineligible player.
The Panel decided to deduct the club one Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League point and fine them £250 for fielding Lee Davey as a late substitute in the league match against Carmarthen Town (5/1/13).
Davey had previously played for Colwyn Bay FC and Conwy Borough FC during the present season and while he was entitled to register for Connah’s Quay Nomads – participating for three teams in one season is not permitted.
Connah’s Quay Nomads seven business days in which to appeal the decision. The club is perfectly within its rights to appeal the decision.
The Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League is aware that this may impact the beginning of the Second Phase of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League.

Connah's Quay have confirmed that they will appeal.
AT least some of the Welsh Premier's second phase of fixtures are certain to be delayed after Gap Connah's Quay decided to appeal their one-point deduction by the FAW.
The Nomads appeared to have qualified for the Championship Conference after the split with a 6-3 win at Bala Town, only for the FAW to announce the point deduction for fielding an ineligible player.
"We apologise for any disruption that might occur to our colleagues as we take our right to appeal," says an official statement from the Deeside Stadium.
"We believe we are innocent of the charge brought against us by the FAW as both prosecution and jury.
"We are taking this fight forward and hope you will appreciate that, if we allow this injustice to proceed, we weaken all of the clubs.
"It could easily be you charged similarly next. If the official Welsh FA registrations database is not to be trusted and is dismissed by the FAW as just advisory then how are clubs to protect themselves in this situation?
"We will avail of our right to appeal until no appeal process is left open to us. Unfortunately this may take some time," the statement concludes.
