Cornwall FA has now completed its investigation into the incidents at the Falmouth Town v St Blazey AFC Kitchen Kit Peninsula League game on Saturday 25th January.
Having received several statements and spoken at length with the match officials and the Devon & Cornwall Police, we will be taking the following action.
St Blazey AFC – Charged for an alleged Breach of FA Rule E20 (Failed to ensure Players and/or Officials and/or Spectators conducted themselves in an orderly fashion)
Rule E20 states - Each Affiliated Association, Competition and Club shall be responsible for ensuring: (a) that its directors, players, officials, employees, servants, representatives, spectators, and all persons purporting to be its supporters or followers, conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and refrain from any one or combination of the following: improper, violent, threatening, abusive, indecent, insulting or provocative words or behaviour, (including, without limitation, where any such conduct, words or behaviour includes a reference, whether express or implied, to any one or more of ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability) whilst attending at or taking part in a Match in which it is involved, whether on its own ground or elsewhere.
St Blazey will have two weeks to respond to the charge and until this case has been concluded it would be inappropriate to make any further comment.
