Silkmen "Shocked And Profoundly Disappointed" As EFL Appeal Independent Disciplinary Panel Ruling

3 July 2020

Macclesfield Town are both shocked and profoundly disappointed to confirm that the English Football League have decided to appeal against the outcome of an Independent Disciplinary Commission, in respect of misconduct charges levied against the Club.

These charges relate to the payment of player salaries in March 2020 and have previously been examined by the relevant Commission on two separate occasions.

On 19th June 2020, the Commission ruled that the Club was to be deducted a further two points from the 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two table, as well as imposing a £20,000 fine  "subject to the EFL, in it's absolute discretion, considering whether to waive, defer or repay the same in the light of the business plan required."

This matter will now be referred back to an Independent Disciplinary Commission once again, where we will vigorously refute the perceived notion that the Commission's previous judgment was is in any way invalid.

The Club will provide a further update in due course.
