Finley Suspended

The New Saints’ Sam Finley will serve a three match suspension as and from the 20th of March 2014, after an FAW charge for violent conduct was accepted by the player.

The incident with Airbus UK Broughton’s Ryan Wignall, which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video, occurred during the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League fixture between the two sides at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on Saturday, 22 February 2014.

Finley will miss the WPL fixtures between Newtown on Saturday the 22nd of March and Rhyl on Friday the 28th of March. The Liverpool-born midfielder will also have to sit out the home fixture between The New Saints and Newtown on April the 1st, which Chairman Mike Harris recently announced will be free to the public.

The former Warrington man has been in terrific form this season and has so far scored an impressive nine goals in the WPL.
