Orihuela v Cox result overturned following protest
The FFCV have stepped in to award CD Cox three points, despite losing 4-3 against Orihuela CF B in the Valencia 1st Regional Group 9 on January 9.
The regional derby between Orihuela B, under coach Edu Barcelò, and CD Cox, was played at El Palmeral de Orihuela.
Barceló fielded several youth players in the senior squad.
Immediately after the fixture, CD Cox made a protest before the body of the Valencian Federation, in which they stated Orihuela CF B could have infringed article 269 of the Regulations, a rule that states a team must have at least seven registered players from that squad on the field.
The competition judge, favoured CD Cox under coach Juanan Cases, changing the result of the derby game and awarding the three points to CD Cox, by a scoreline of 0-3.
Orihuela can lodge an appeal before the Appeals Committee.
