FA Regulatory Commission rejected Ellis Deeney's Red Card

Bucks boss Gavin Cowan has expressed his disappointment following the FA's decision not to rescind the red card issued to Ellis Deeney following last Saturday 1-1 draw at Chorley

The midfielder was dismissed during the second half of last weekend’s clash at Victoria Park by referee Barry Lamb for an alleged stamp on Chorley’s Adam Blakeman.

The Bucks subsequently appealed the decision, but an FA Regulatory Commission rejected the claim and Deeney will now miss the next three National League North fixtures.

Cowan spoke of his disappointment “To say we are disappointed with the decision is an understatement. Given the evidence, visual and the statement from the Chorley player, I am at a loss as to how they have not reversed the decision.  Is it even worth having an appeal system if strong cases such as ours don’t eve get a look in. We are fortunate to have a strong group so the injustice will only make us stronger”

The Bucks will host Curzon Ashton at the New Bucks Head tomorrow afternoon, 3pm KO.
