AFC Sudbury and Hendon both handed fines by The FA
AFC Sudbury and Hendon have both been fined by The Football Association for their roles in the abandoned fixture in January between the two clubs.
Last month The FA told the Free Press that both clubs were being charged with misconduct offences and would face fines for their parts in the abandoned Ryman League Premier Division fixture on January 21.
The Free Press can reveal that Sudbury have been fined the sum of £300 and Hendon £600, with both clubs warned as to their future conduct.
The fines relate to the abandoned fixture at Silver Jubilee Park on January 21, which saw visitors Sudbury leading 2-1 in second half added time, before an incident led to a coming together on the pitch from both sides, including substitutes and non-playing staff.
After a lengthy stoppage to try and get things back under control, the referee sent off Hendon’s Kevin McLaren and gave a yellow card to Sudbury’s Liam Wales.
The referee then ordered the players and officials off the pitch after abandoning the game.
It is believed the clubs have until Friday to appeal the decision, before the points situation will be sorted out.
AFC, who host Hendon this Saturday (3pm), are hoping to be given the three points from the abandoned game, rather than the fixture being replayed later on this season.
