AFC Wimbledon choose not to appeal

29 April 2014

AFC Wimbledon will not be appealing against their three point deduction for playing an ineligible player last month.

The Dons selected Jake Nicholson in the matchday squad for their Sky Bet League Two clash with Cheltenham on March 22 and he came on as a substitute at half time, scoring as they went on to win 4-3.

Following a Football Disciplinary Commission on Monday, they have been docked three points and fined £5,000, suspended until the end of next season and chief executive Erik Samuelson spoke of the club's regret at the situation.

"We feel that the club had a fair hearing and, while very disappointed with the result, have no intention of appealing against the decision of the Football Disciplinary Committee," he told the club's official website.

"The Football Club Board greatly regrets that this situation arose and apologises for the uncertainty and distress that it has caused to supporters in the days since the hearing was announced."
