CHIEF executive Nigel Clibbens says Town are satisfied with their treatment by the Football Association after being fined £500 and ordered to pay a further £100 costs for failing to control their players during the League I clash with MK Dons in December.
The Galpharm club pleaded guilty but sought a personal hearing after being called to account following a skirmish involving most of the outfield players near the end of the match, which Town won 1-0.
The hearing took place at Wembley and Town were represented by operations director Ann Hough and Mick McGuire, the former Professional Footballers’ Association official who is now an agent.
“We received a very fair hearing and we are satisfied with the outcome,” said Clibbens.
“We sought the personal hearing because there were factors we believed were relevant which we wanted to put forward, and the commission took our views on board.”
Town were also fined £500 after pleading guilty to the same charge following the game at Bristol Rovers in August, when Gary Roberts was given a retrospective red card after the 1-0 defeat.
