IN THE MATTER of Rams Village Superstars Players; JOEL JEFFERS, KEN QUEELEY and IROY JEFFERS in match Rams Village Superstars versus S.L. Horsford’s St. Pauls on 18th June 2011 at Warner Park Stadium
1. IN THE MATTER OF ERNEST QUEELEY
Pursuant to Article 18 (4) of the FIFA Code, the decision of the Committee in relation to ERNEST QUEELEY is for a furtherance and/or extension of the suspension from the Bench for one match, that is the first match commencing next league.
The Committee wishes further to issue a warning pursuant to Article 13 of the FIFA Code in relation to Mr. Queeley and any other individual and/or team and states that any act that amounts to a non compliance of a previous sanction will certainly be frowned upon.
2. IN THE MATTER OF IROY JEFFERS
The committee was not in a position to make any decision in relation to IROY JEFFERS, and accordingly dismisses the complaint against him.
3. IN THE MATTER OF JOEL JEFFERS
The Committee endorses the red card issued by Referee Stewart Rawlins in the 90th minute, and finds that a fine of EC$1,000.00 is reasonable in all the circumstances. This would be done pursuant to Rule 19 (e) of the SKNFA Leagues’ Rules and Regulations which provides for the payment of such fine from any player or team official who verbally abuses a match official.
The rule further provides for the payment of the fine to the Secretariat before the Team’s next match. Accordingly, the decision of the Committee is for the payment of the fine of EC$1000.00 by JOEL JEFFERS to the Secretariat on or before the next scheduled fixture for the Rams Village Superstars.
Additionally, the Committee wishes to state that it frowns upon this type of behavior and finds it to be unacceptable, and issues a serious reprimand pursuant to Article 14 of the FIFA code in relation to JOEL JEFFERS that this behavior would certainly not be tolerated in the future.
