Plymouth Argyle have been reinstated in the F.A.Women's Cup after Newquay were removed from the competition for fielding an ineligible player.
The Cornish side had won the Second Round tie 2-1 but it has since emerged that winning goalscorer Ellis Glanfield was not qualified to play.
A Football Association statement said: "Following a protest received from Plymouth Argyle LFC it has been determined that by Newquay Ladies playing Ellis Glanfield in The FA Women's Cup Second Round Proper Tie against Plymouth Argyle on Sunday 9 January 2011 without an International Clearance Certificate are in breach of FA Women's Cup Rule 15(i)(ii), and as a sanction, Newquay Ladies should be removed from The FA Women's Cup Competition and that Plymouth Argyle LFC are awarded the tie and that no fine be imposed on Newquay Ladies as removal from the Competition is deemed sufficient punishment and as a consequence, Newquay Ladies will be allowed to enter the FA Women's Cup Competition for Season 2011-12."
Therefore Plymouth Argyle will now play away to Derby County in the Third Round on Sunday 6 February.
