Auchinleck Talbot have won an appeal over their exit from the South Challenge Cup.

Talbot had been retrospectively been kicked out of the cup after fielding an ineligible player.

The club were notified of this decision following their win against Lowland League side, East Kilbride on March 4.

They were advised that on-loan Clyde goalkeeper Josh Bradley-Hurst, who played in the match, was cup-tied.

Ironically, Bradley-Hurst was signed on emergency loan as fellow new signing Marc Fisher was cup-tied having played for Troon in an earlier round.

Talbot said they were "disappointed" with the decision, adding that they had been working with the information given to them.

However, after launching an appeal against the decision, Talbot confirmed that they have now been reinstated in the cup.

The club will now face Caledonian Braves FC on the April 1 at the Alliance Park.

A club spokesperson said: "Following a successful appeal the club are reinstated into the South Challenge at the quarter final stage as per the result Vs East Kilbride FC."
