Truro City Reserves have been docked ten points by the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League following confirmation today that the club has moved into administration.
Peninsula League company secretary Phil Hiscox issued a statement which read: "
The South West Peninsula Football League Ltd has been advised officially that Truro City Football Club is subject to an insolvency event following the appointment of an Administrator on Tuesday, 4th September 2012.
"In accordance with Competition Rules relating to 'Sporting Sanctions' the club has had ten (10) points deducted from its league table score in the Carlsberg SW Peninsula West Division.
"This sanction is subject to Appeal but a club may only Appeal on the ground that the insolvency proceedings arose solely as a result of a Force Majeure event.
"Such Appeal must be submitted within seven (7) days of the date of notification of the sanction."
Mr Hiscox said the decision had been taken following advice from the Football Association and acting onlu after the Football Conference imposed the same penalty earlier in the day.
City's reserves lost their opening two games in the Peninsula League's division one west, so they are now officially on minus ten points.
