Portsmouth Women removed from FA Cup

Portsmouth Women have been removed from this season’s Women’s FA Cup for fielding an ineligible player against Cheltenham Town Ladies in their second-round tie on April 4.

As a result, the tie has been awarded to Cheltenham Town and no further action will be taken against Portsmouth.

Portsmouth had won the tie 2-0 and were scheduled to play Gillingham in the third round but Cheltenham will now take their place.

Sky Sports has announced a three-year deal with the FA to become the primary broadcaster of the Barclays Women’s Super League from September 2021.

As one of the most competitive leagues, with some of the most famous names and teams in the world, the WSL will be one of Sky Sports’ flagship offerings.

The deal will see Sky Sports show at least 35 games exclusively live per season and further strengthens the broadcaster’s commitment to women’s sport.
