The Club has made the following statement after confirmation that our £25,000 fine for breaching FA Rules relating to intermediary activity has been reduced to £12,500 following a successful appeal.
Following today’s announcement regarding the success of the Club’s appeal lodged with The Football Association we would like to express our gratitude to The FA for their consideration in this matter.
We appealed against the size of the fine, imposed on the Club due to the actions of former employees, under a previous regime, and it goes without saying that this was - and is to a certain extent - hard to take.
However, we fully respect the process and are comfortable with the conclusions.
We would like to assure fans that we will always protect the interests of the Club and will always attempt to do things the right way.
