Statement: Wythenshawe Town FC v Rylands FC

Update following an investigation into the Wythenshawe Town FC v Rylands FC

Following a match between Wythenshawe Town and Rylands on 26th January 2019, which resulted in an abandonment, an alleged incident was reported to Manchester FA. 

After a full investigation, an assistant referee was charged with an ‘aggravated’ breach of FA Rule E3 and Wythenshawe Town’s manager was charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.

An Independent Regulatory Commission today found the charge involving the assistant referee proven and the Wythenshawe Town manager accepted his charge.  

All charges are subject to a 7-day appeal period and the written reasons in relation to this case will be published by The Football Association in due course. 

Manchester FA takes all allegations of this nature very seriously and strongly condemns discrimination of any kind.
