“From the evidence produced, the Members ruled that it was a case of wrongful dismissal. On this basis your claim has been successful. The automatic suspension is withdrawn but it should be noted that the record of the dismissal will remain on the record of the player and the Club. The administration fee will still be charged, but section 8(h) of the disciplinary procedures will not be invoked. Therefore, Lee Minshull is eligible to play.”
