Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
Carlisle United player Shaun Miller has been charged for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’. It is alleged he committed a clear act of simulation which led to a penalty being awarded in the 35th minute of the game against Wycombe Wanderers on 17 October 2017. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2017 to respond.
Incidents which suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation are referred to a panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player. Each panel member will be asked to review all available video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.
Only in circumstances where the panel are unanimous would The FA issue a charge. For further information on the offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ click here.
