Queen’s Park Football Club President David Hunter said: “We have been advised by the Scottish Football Association that our participation in this season’s Scottish Cup is at an end. An error was made regarding the eligibility of a player who featured in Tuesday night’s game with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and we have accepted the SFA’s decision.”
“It is a regrettable mistake. One we will learn from.” “Our team put on a tremendous display on Tuesday to win the tie and obviously today’s result is a hugely disappointing outcome. As upsetting as this matter is, it’s vital that we put this behind us quickly, move on and focus on our league campaign.”
David added: “The support we received from our fans on Tuesday was terrific. We are conscious that they invested time and money travelling to the game.” “I will be speaking to the Supporters Association over the coming days to suggest how the club can recognise the efforts of the travelling support”.
