MAWGAN United have been kicked out of the Falmouth and Helston League following a meeting of officials last night.

The decision came after the club failed to turn up to two consecutive fixtures.

A statement from the Falmouth/Helston Football League said: "Following a meeting of the League Management Committee on Tuesday, January 20, it was agreed with immediate effect to expel Mawgan United FC from the league under rule 5H: (A club having failed to comply with an order or instruction of the Management Committee, or failing to satisfactorily attend to the business and/or the correspondence of the competition, shall be liable to be fined or otherwise penalised at the discretion of the Management Committee.) The club was also fined an undisclosed sum of money."

"The club can re-apply to rejoin the League at the next AGM on the understanding that any unpaid fines are cleared and is run by an elected committee.

"Mr Martin McPhilpin a player/member of Mawgan United has been suspended indefinitely from taking any part within a club registered with the Falmouth/Helston Football League under rule 17: (Any official or member of a club proved guilty of either misconduct, other than field offences, or of inducing or attempting to induce a player or players of another Club in the Competition to join them shall be liable to expulsion or such penalty as a General or Meeting or Management Committee may decide, and their club shall also be liable to expulsion in accordance with provisions of Clauses 9 (a) and (B) of this rule).
