The Football Association have confirmed that the red card shown to Nicky Deverdics during Saturday’s game at Dover Athletic has been rescinded.

Deverdics was sent-off in the closing stages of the game against his former club at the weekend but the Club studied footage of the incident and lodged an appeal with The FA.

A hearing was held on Tuesday afternoon where the panel agreed with our stance that any contact between Deverdics and Dover player Connor Essam was purely accidental.

The 30-year-old would have served a three-game ban had the red card been upheld but will now be free to play in this weekend’s FA Trophy tie at Workington.
