NEWS: Mariners to appeal O’Donovan decision

NEWS: Mariners to appeal O’Donovan decision

The Central Coast Mariners have lodged an appeal to challenge the eight-match suspension imposed upon Roy O’Donovan by the FFA Disciplinary & Ethics Committee.

When assessed against penalties imposed for similar incidents, the penalty is manifestly excessive and reflects a clear disconnection between the Hyundai A-League and other leagues (both domestically & internationally). 

It also highlights the disparity between penalties imposed when matters go to the Match Review Panel rather than the Disciplinary & Ethics Committee, indicating the need for a system that operates with consistency and fairness to Clubs and players.

The Club will make no further comment until the appeal is heard.
