The Football Association will not be taking formal action against the club following their investigation into objects being thrown on to the pitch in matches last season against Sutton United and Chelmsford City.
The FA reacted positively to the club’s response to the incidents and noted: “We acknowledge the club’s thorough investigation into the matter. The Football Association has considered the matter and will not be taking any formal disciplinary action on this occasion. The Football Association now considers this matter to be closed.”
However, the FA did warn that any further trouble could see the issue raised again by the football authorities and Ebbsfleet United FC remains committed to eradicating the throwing of objects and other such behaviour. The FA wrote, “Please be advised that we may have to consider disciplinary action against the club if further reports of spectator misconduct should be received and The Association reserves the right to refer to the current matter in such circumstances.”
Anybody identified as being involved in any such incidents will be banned from attending future Fleet matches. Meanwhile, the club appreciates the co-operation of the vast majority of both home and visiting supporters in ensuring that all matches are trouble-free and safe and enjoyable to attend.
