    ** Disciplinary proceedings have commenced against Albion Rovers, who fielded an ineligible player in the game against Spartans on Tuesday, which Albion Rovers won on penalties.

    Albion Rovers fielded an ineligible player, Liam McGuigan, during their IRN-BRU Cup First Round fixture at home to Spartans, played last night (Tuesday, 15 August, 2017).

    The tie finished 0-0 after extra time, with Albion Rovers then winning the resulting penalty shoot-out 5-4.

    Disciplinary proceedings have therefore been commenced against Albion Rovers. Pending the outcome of these proceedings, Albion Rovers and Spartans will both be in the draw for the Second Round of this season’s IRN-BRU Cup, being held tomorrow (Thursday, 17 August, 2017)

    No further statement will be provided before the disciplinary process is completed.

    Albion Rovers to be awarded a 3-0 victory for cheating.
    The local tarriers to riot when Linfield are in town.

    I'd enjoy a wee trip up to watch Linfield hammer the mini scum.

    Hope they don't get booted out the competition

    If they played an ineligible player they will be out. Ironically, Spartans got tossed out of the Scottish Cup 4 years ago for fielding an ineligible player against Culter.

    Unless they have relocated then News Saints are a Welsh Football League club.

    Linfield played well today, spartans goalie had a few good saves and the linfield lad Deans had a cracker at the end.

    Hopefully a bigger tie for the blues in the next round

    Was a great day out ,I felt Linfield let Spartans into the game in the 2nd half instead of killing them off.

    Yes. I thought Linfield fully deserved the win. Spartans and their pitch was a bit unknown beforehand. I had expected more Linfield fans to be there, but short notice and international weekend probably had an impact.

    They (spartans) only came into once linfield scored the second and took the foot of the gas, credit to their keeper, he kept them in it.

    I think also a tanker fire may have caused issues on the A78
