Club are apparently looking into this with a view of appealing about the game considering Pugh played.

If Pugh shouldn't have been playing then he may be deemed ineligible and Evesham could stand to lose the points in thhose games.

The only way Redditch will gain from this is by a loss of points for a rival - they won't rule that the game be replayed.

If he was ineligible, the Southern League will look into it on the basis of the Worcestershire FA's findings - Redditch United don't need to look into anything - Reds would be ill advised to get themselves involved, it would be a serious faux pas trying to go round trying to get other clubs punished.

Agreed - I'm not aware of any precedent where a league game has been replayed, or the points awarded to the opposition, after one side has been found guilty of fielding an ineligible player. When we had three points deducted for bringing on Scott Voice against (IIRC) Hinckley before his loan expired, the points weren't awarded to the opposition, and I know that was the Conference not the Southern League, but I'm pretty sure they'll follow the same guidelines. Imagine the chaos it would cause if this player had played ineligibly in half a dozen matches - would they all then have to be replayed? It's just not practical.
