APPEAL RESULT: Jordon Roberts (Lauderdale)

The TSL appeals board this evening dismissed Lauderdale FC’s appeal against the severity of suspension to Jordon Roberts.  Roberts was suspended for six matches from a rough conduct charge sustained in round 13 v Launceston.

Lauderdale challenged the grading of the conduct; arguing the tribunal had erred in their decision of classifying the conduct as intentional as opposed to careless.   However in considering the matter; the TSL appeals board found no compelling evidence to suggest that the tribunal had erred in its decision making process.  Therefore dismissed the club’s appeal.

Roberts will be ineligible for the next five Lauderdale matches, as he served week one of his suspension in the weekend’s match versus Hobart City. Roberts will be eligible for selection in round 20.
