Hearts Women

Club accepts sanctions for ineligible players in women's cup tie

10th August 2021

Heart of Midlothian Football Club accepts the sanctions issued to Hearts Women for listing ineligible players in their League Cup victory over St Johnstone on Sunday.

The club has been fined £200 and the result of the match has been reverted to a 3-0 St Johnstone victory.

This was a genuine mistake made by human error and new procedures have been put in place to make sure it is not repeated.

The club would like to apologise to the SWPL, to St Johnstone and to our own players for this incident.
