King's Lynn have lost their FA demotion appeal in Derby.

A three-member Derbyshire FA panel rejected the club's bid to overturn the club's Conference explusion for failing to initiate a �250,000 upgrade to their council-owned Walks stadium before a March 31 deadline.

The FA panel deliberated for 55 minutes before upholding the Conference's initial ruling. Lynn now face being placed in the Unibond or Southern Premier Division for the 2009/10 season.

Club officials expect to find out later this afternoon following the outcome of a second ground grading appeal by Unibond club Cammell Laird.
