Oyston admits FA rules breach

Date published: Thursday 4th June 2015 5:16

The charges arise from a text message exchange where Mr Oyston used abusive and/or insulting words towards a supporter of the club, which were aggravated by a reference to disability.

The FA first opened a probe into Oyston’s conversations with fan Stephen Smith back in December and followed that up by bringing a charge against him in March.

However, Oyston denied that charge one month later and challenged it as ‘unlawful’, a claim which the governing body last week announced was dismissed by an arbitral tribunal.

The hearing is scheduled to take place on Tuesday June 9.
