The Essendon District Football League has taken responsibility for errors in the allocation of player point values to East Keilor players this season.
In a statement on the EDFL website, the league said it had conducted a thorough review of the player point values, after concerns were raised about the points of several players.
The Cougars have been found to have played over the player points cap of 47 in three of their games, with several players allocated the wrong playing points.
Errors in the initial validation of East Keilor’s player point values caused the mistakes according to the statement.
“The East Keilor Football Club submitted their playing list for validation at the appropriate time during the pre-season and the EDFL had sent back its validation assessment, which the club was entitled to take as advice from the league,” the statement said.
“As a result of this re-assessment and correction of player point values, the total team point values for three matches already completed now shows as being above 47 points.
“This is not considered to be a breach of the Player Point Policy by East Keilor.
“The EDFL accepts responsibility for this, as at the time of these matches being played, East Keilor FC believed that it was listing players within the total team point cap of 47 points as a result of advice from the EDFL on PPV allocations.”
