HANWORTH VILLA'S quest for a league and cup double took a double-whammy this week.
First, Villa's Combined Counties Division One promotion push took a backward step after being held 1-1 in Saturday's derby with Feltham.
And they were then hit with the news that they are being thrown out of the Anagram Records Trophy, in which they had made the semi-finals, after fielding an ineligible player in the quarter-final win over Takeley.
Villa stayed second, but slipped to third when Staines Lammas won on Tuesday night.
Tony Buss Jnr gave Villa a 15th-minute lead against, but Feltham hit back with Andrew Juett's equaliser on the hour-mark.
But Villa were hit with another double-whammy when Charlie Hare and Chris Byron were sent off.
Villa chairman Gary Brunning said: "It wasn't really a heated derby, but the ref lost it a bit, making wise cracks to the crowd and that sort of thing.
"As for the cup, it's annoying as we should've known about the player, but it's a competition we won't be entering next year."
CB Hounslow United moved up to ninth in Division One with a 2-0 win over Coulsdon United, Anthony Bridgeman and R De Silva on target.
Villa host Dorking on Saturday, while Feltham welcome South Park and CB travel to Crescent Rovers.
