📝 Club Statement: EFL Fine

10 January 2024

Exeter City Football Club has reached an Agreed Decision with the EFL in relation to a breach of its regulations.

The breach relates to the naming of an ineligible player (Jack Fitzwater) on the team sheet in the Sky Bet League One fixture against Leyton Orient on 9 September 2023 when the player was not named on the club’s squad list.

The club therefore committed misconduct through failing to comply with the requirements of Regulation 44.8 and will be fined £5,000 (£2,500 suspended) in relation to the breach.

Although this incident stemmed from an administrative oversight, this is a matter which we have taken very seriously and as a result we have reviewed our procedures to avoid any recurrence.
