Points deduction for Coventry
 Women's Football News 7 May 2015
The FA Women's Premier League has ruled that Coventry City Ladies FC fielded an ineligible player. 
The Club played both Emma Hollingsworth and Carly Davies - both registered as FA Women's Super League players - in their FA WPL fixtures on 12 April against Huddersfield Town and 16 April against Nottingham Forest. Coventry won these matches 6-4 and 2-0 respectively.
FA WPL rules state only one player registered with an FA Women's Super League Club may represent an FA WPL Club on the field at any one time.
In accordance with FA WPL Rule 8C, Coventry shall have the points gained from each of those matches deducted from its total with immediate effect. No further sanction was imposed.
The Club would ordinarily have until 19th May to lodge an appeal with The Football Association.
However, The FA Women's Premier League Management Committee have applied to the Chairman of the Appeal Board to abridge the time limit of 14 days to submit an appeal, under Disciplinary Procedures Appeal Proceedings Regulation 2.7, due to the play-off match on 24 May.
Coventry City Ladies FC have issued the following statement on the matter: 
"CCLFC has been charged and found to be in breach of FAWPL Rule 8c concerning eligibility of players on two occasions during April 2015, resulting in a 6 point deduction effective from 6th May 2015. The Club is extremely disappointed with this decision, particularly as we have never intentionally or knowingly broken any rules. We will be taking this matter under advisement and therefore have no further comment to make at this time while we consider our options."

This means that Sheffield FC have been catapulted to the top of the Northern Division and require four more points from their final three matches in order to win the title.
