York fans pay FA fine

A York City fan has donated the full amount of an FA fine for the Nationwide Conference side's involvement in a recent touchline brawl with Woking.

In the a further boost, another supporter, who also wishes to remain anonymous, has donated £500 to the club after learning of their fate at the hands of the FA.

Defenders James Dudgeon and Nathan Peat were both given red cards for their involvement in the melee and have received additional suspensions of three matches.

Woking assistant-manager Matt Crossley has been handed a four-match touchline ban after head-butting unused City sub Dudgeon.

"We would like to express our sincere thanks to the two supporters who have made these substantial donations to the club to cover the cost of the fine imposed by the FA," City managing director Jason McGill told the York Press.

"As we have previously stated, we thought the fine was very harsh and it was an unwelcome financial pressure at what is a critical time in the season. These donations have eased the pressure completely which will ultimately benefit Billy McEwan and the team in our push for a play-off place.

"Finances continue to be tight and it's fair to say we would have been unable to sign all three new players if these donations had not been made."
