Town and Burton Charged By FA
Friday, 18th Dec 2020 14:32
Town and Burton Albion have been charged with failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion following the melee in the late stages of the Blues’ 2-1 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday.
An FA statement reads: “Ipswich Town and Burton Albion have both been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20 following their EFL League One game on Tuesday 15th December 2020.
“It is alleged that Ipswich Town failed to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 92nd minute of the game.
“It is also alleged that Burton Albion FC failed to ensure that its players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 92nd minute of the game.
“Both clubs have until Tuesday 22 December 2020 to provide their responses.”
The incident occurred when Armando Dobra fouled Ryan Edwards, who remonstrated with the Blues youngster who was then thrown to the floor by Burton skipper John Brayford leading to a confrontation involving most of the rest of the two teams.
Eventually order was restored and Dobra, Edwards and Brayford were booked by referee Darren Bond.
In November, Town were fined £2,500 by the FA for the mass confrontation following Jon Nolan’s red card at Lincoln in October with the Imps receiving a £2,000 penalty for their role in the incident.

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
