Further to an Independent Disciplinary Commission hearing on Tuesday 21st April 2020, Macclesfield Town can confirm that the Club have been served with an immediate seven point deduction - with two additional points suspended.
This has been imposed as a result of two further misconduct charges, which the Club admitted at the earliest possible opportunity.
These being non-fulfilment of the scheduled Sky Bet League Two fixture against Plymouth Argyle on 21st December 2019 and the non-payment of players on the applicable payment date back in February 2020.
The panel ruled that a sporting sanction of four points should be applied immediately in relation to these charges, with two points suspended on the condition that the Club does not breach any further Regulations this season.
In addition to this, the Arbitration panel also ruled that three suspended points which related to previous charges should be applied immediately.
This means that the Club now reside in 23rd position within the Sky Bet League Two table, having amassed a revised total of 25 points.
