Farsley Celtic have been fined by the EVO-STIK League for playing an ineligible player.
The EVO-STIK League Premier Division club accepted a charge of breaching League Rule 6.9 after being found guilty at a disciplinary hearing of fielding a player in a single fixture while subject to an Football Association disciplinary suspension. The FA had previously found the club to be in breach of FA Rule E10 in this respect.
Club officials informed the EVO-STIK League on Tuesday 13 February that they were waiving the right to appeal and would accept the sanction after submitting a mitigating written statement to the panel. No costs were awarded and no points were deducted as none were gained while fielding the player. The £100 fine was levied in accordance with the recommended minimum tariff.
There will be no further statement from the Northern Premier League on this matter.
