Barcelona kicked out of Spanish women's cup for fielding ineligible player

Barcelona have been officially thrown out of Spain's top domestic women's cup competition for fielding an ineligible player.

The domestic champions won't be able to defend their Copa de la Reina title from last season with the Spanish FA (RFEF) having now confirmed that Barca are expelled from the tournament. It means England stars Lucy Bronze and Keira Walsh won't be able to win the quadruple in their first season at the club, although Barcelona can still appeal the decision.
