Bangor City have announced they will appeal against the 21 point deduction imposed on them by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) for allegedly breaking several rules last season.
The club were found guilty of breaching FAW rules relating to the 2018/19 season, which included failing to adhere to the correct registration procedures of players, fielding ineligible players in a number of games and failing to comply with their financial obligations towards six of their players.
The FAW panel originally deducted 42 points from Bangor City, which would have seen the club would have been relegated from the Huws Gray Alliance, despite finishing 4th in the League.
Following a successful appeal the club in June, the points deduction was reduced to 21 points, which meant that Bangor City avoided relegation on goal difference. Bangor were also fined £700 by the FAW.
Bangor were unable to appeal against the Disciplinary Panel’s decision to place a transfer embargo on the club, until 31 December 2019, as the deadline for an appeal had lapsed.
The club have now confirmed they will appeal the 21-point deduction
at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
A statement from Bangor City read: “The appeal submitted to the FAW on Monday was to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to clear the name of the club.
“The club will once again be represented by Chris O’Neal.
“No further comment will be made at this stage.”
