Aldershot Town FC fine player over social network outburst

Wed 5th Jan 2011 | Marketing & PR

A Disciplinary meeting was held at the Aldershot Town Football Club offices today to discuss detrimental comments that were provided by its player, Marvin Morgan, on the social networking site Twitter after the Bank Holiday Monday fixture versus Hereford United.

The player accepted that his conduct was totally misguided and inappropriate, and he accepts that his actions were incorrect and ill-disciplined.

Accepting that his actions had been foolish, he explained that they had been made in the heat of the moment and apologised for the distress he had caused

The Football Club are satisfied that the player meant no malice with his comments. However, they were completely irresponsible and contrary to the values of Aldershot Town Football Club.

The player has also undermined the good work that he and his colleagues have done in serving the local community.

The Club is also of the opinion that careful consideration is required for all future use of social networking sites by players and staff as a means of communication.

The Hearing decided to fine the player the maximum two weeks’ wages, during which time he will be absent from the club. He has also been placed on the transfer list.

There will be no further comment from the Football Club regarding this matter, which is now closed.
