Neyland AFC seem set to be dramatically reinstated in this season’s West Wales Intermediate Cup after it emerged Rhos had been removed from the competition.

The Neath based team beat The Nomads this month to seemingly book a place in the quarter finals, winning an epic game 5-4 after extra time.

That had been despite Neyland leading 4-2 deep into the second half after a hat trick from Jason Griffiths and a goal from Patrick Bellerby.

But on Sunday night, Rhos confirmed via social media that their fifth substitute that day had been deemed ineligible by the West Wales Football Association, and they had therefore been thrown out.

"Rhos have been removed from the West Wales cup due to fielding an ineligible player," a club statement read.

"No one at the club was aware of this, the player was signed at Christmas and was used as the fifth sub during extra time Neyland. Silly mistake and we're gutted but good luck to all those left in."

As it stands, Neyland are still awaiting official confirmation of their progress, but competition rules make it almost certain that they will now be in the last eight for the first time in their history.

That round will take place on Saturday, March 7th. The one outstanding tie of the fourth round between Hakin and Goodwick United has been scheduled for this Saturday, following weeks of delay due to the mumps outbreak in Goodwick.
