Southend United charged with misconduct for non-payment of players and fielding an ineligible player

9 March 2020

Southend United has been issued with a second misconduct charge for non-payment of players, alongside a further charge for fielding an ineligible player.

The Club has been referred to an independent Disciplinary Commission for failing to adhere to the terms of the players’ contracts in failing pay a number players on the applicable payment due dates in February 2020. The Commission will also hear an additional charge relating to the fielding of an ineligible player in the Sky Bet League One match against Lincoln City FC on 1 February 2020.

As both matters are now subject to proceedings, the EFL will be making no further comment at this time.
