Seaton Rangers' fine reduced
Last updated at 20:24, Thursday, 20 October 2011
Seaton Rangers have had their fine for refusing to represent Cumbria in the Champion of Champions final reduced by just £100 on appeal.
Barla originally charged the reigning league champions £200 for non-fulfilment of fixtures but halved the amount.
Seaton will still have to pay £500 for bringing the game into disrepute.
The charges came after Seaton twice postponed the final with Leeds side Queens to the annoyance of Barla and the Cumberland Amateur Rugby League.
They must pay £100 within the next 28 days followed by £50 installments over the next 10 months.
The disappointment came days before Seaton’s second team pulled out of the truncated winter season, stating an inability to guarantee a team every match.
Each time they failed to complete the fixtures, a £50 fine was awarded by Carl.
The Cumbrian board will meet next month to discuss what to do with the points others have already won against Seaton.
The club declined to comment.
