Town and Coventry Fined By FA
Thursday, 19th Dec 2019 16:42

Town and Coventry have both been fined by the FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 1-1 League One draw between the teams at St Andrew’s on Saturday 7th December.

The fine relates to the 57th-minute clash between Gwion Edwards and Sam McCallum close to the dugouts, which led to both sets of players, including keepers and some subs, becoming involved in a melee.

Edwards and Sky Blues sub Gervane Kastaneer, who was warming up at the time, were yellow-carded by referee Darren Drysdale.

Both clubs pleaded guilty to the charge with the Blues supplying a written account of the incident.

An FA statement released this afternoon reads: “Coventry City FC and Ipswich Town FC have been fined £2,700 and £3,750 respectively for breaching FA Rule E20.

“Both clubs admitted failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 57th minute of their EFL League One fixture on Saturday 7th December 2019.

“Coventry City FC accepted the standard penalty, but submitted a late response to the charge which was subsequently permitted by an independent regulatory commission, and Ipswich Town FC requested a paper hearing.”

How have they come up with those fines? The only real moment to talk about here was their sub getting Edwards in a headlock.

It was because of their substitutes action that everything escalated and yet we get fined more, I don't understand that.

Totally bizarre FA decision. But then the FA’s a totally bizarre disorganisation!

ME will have to replace Cablis with Blue Nun in the Boardroom for a while!

It’s a pity the FA don’t concentrate their efforts on fining the inept officials we have experienced this season.

I suspect it's because we requested a paper hearing whereas Cov just admitted it. Like trying to appeal a parking fine. 9 times out of 10 it's futile trying to appeal because the scum just want to fleece you for cash. FA doing the same thing here. Wouldn't mind as much if the cash was used to help save another club. Utter ballacks.

Feel a bit badly done by here: ”They started it” after all.

Sick of us coming off worse when the other team cheats. Often it's because the other team plays the oh so poor ref better than we do. Was this guy (who should have been nowhere near the pitch) warming up and stopping us taking a throw in? I feel the same as I did when Forestieri got Toto sent off. We appeal because we are nice Ipswich Town and then they slap on a higher fine. Sick of cheating.
