The long-running saga surrounding Haverhill Rovers and their points deduction is nearing an end after a date for their Wembley hearing was confirmed.

On Thursday, March 9, Rovers will head to the home of English football, where their case will be made in front of the Football Association.

The club remain adamant they have not broken any Thurlow Nunn League rules in the incident in question, which dates back to Mason Newman being deemed ineligible to play in the club’s 2-1 win at Wivenhoe Town on October 29.

Rovers were subsequently stripped of the three points and the result has been removed from the record books.

The re-match had been scheduled for Tuesday, March 7, but that has since been postponed and will be given a new date, depending on the outcome of the hearing.
