It was announced yesterday that Thurrock have been deducted three points for fielding a suspended player, and are thus relegated instead of Carshalton Athletic. The points deduction and relegation are subject to an appeal.

In a statement on the Thurrock website the club said "Today, Friday 24th May, the Chairman and Secretary of Thurrock FC met with the FA Disciplinary Committee with reference to the charge of a breach of FA Rule 10 in respect of a fixture Thurrock FC played on 25th August 2012 and fielded an alleged sine die suspended player. Unfortunately The FA Disciplinary found us guilty.

"In the meeting with the Ryman League that followed we have been deducted three points and are currently relegated to Ryman North. The decision will be appealed and we are still confident that the decision will be reversed when we present our case again."
