FA punishes Clubs for violence

Yeovil Town and Chesterfield have been found guilty of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion, and have both subsequently been fined £2500.

The charge relates to the meeting between the two sides on November 5 at the B2net Stadium. The bottom of the table clash ended 2-2, as The Glovers twice came from behind to share the spoils.

Both clubs pleaded guilty to the charge, after a scuffle broke out between the sides as Yeovil players took umbrage at a challenge from the Spireites' Mark Allot on Ed Upson.

This isn’t the only bit of bad news for Yeovil this week; they have been plunged into a goalkeeping crisis after West Ham recalled young loanee Marek Stech.

The Somerset club were forced to field goalkeeping coach Gareth Stewart in last weekend’s FA Cup win over Hereford, as Stech was called up to international duty with the Czech Under-21 side.

This comes as a headache for manager Terry Skiverton, who is preparing his team for this Saturday’s West Country Derby against Exeter City. The Glovers’ boss must now decide whether to look elsewhere for a stopper or stick with 31-year-old Stewart, who last made a football league appearance in 2008.

This isn’t their first problem with goalkeepers this season either, as they started with Norwich ‘s young keeper Jed Steer. The Canaries called him back after he was injured, which led to the month-long loan deal for Stech.
