– AFC Wimbledon club statement
The club has been called to appear before a Football Disciplinary Committee (FDC) on 28 April in relation to fielding an ineligible player, Jake Nicholson, in our fixture with Cheltenham Town.
The FDC has discretion whether or not to deduct points. We will be represented at the hearing by Jim Sturman QC and he has advised us that it would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time.
As soon as the outcome of the hearing has been determined we will publish the background to this charge.
