Appeal dismissed by FA

St John's have had their relegation to JCK Division Two confirmed, after an appeal against their one-point deduction was dismissed.

They were found to have fielded an ineligible player in their final game of the Canada Life Premier League season.

Louis Morris actually scored the equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Douglas Royal, which resulted in Royals' relegation on goal difference.

They will instead remain in the top flight next season, at the expense of St John's.

The club appealed the original decision made by Isle of Man FA's league management committee, but it has been upheld by the FA's disciplinary committee.
