Saturday League leaders Newlands Park have been thrown out of the Coastal Shellfish League Cup.

At an extraordinary general meeting, the Scarborough News Saturday League committee decided to eject Park from the competition after a player who was banned by the North Riding FA was fielded by the division one pacesetters in their 6-0 quarter-final defeat of Eastfield St James.

Newlands have won all 16 of their league games so far this season and are in the semi-finals of the District and Harbour Cups, so Shaun Mancrief’s side still have their sights set firmly on a league and cup treble.
