Van Egmond cops FFA sanction

Football Federation Australia has announced today that Newcastle Jets’ coach Gary van Egmond has been found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.

Van Egmond was found guilty of breaching clause 2.1 of the FFA National Code of Conduct and was issued a sanction for four matches and a fine of $2,000.

However two of the matches and the fine have been suspended until the end of the 2008-09 Finals series due to “van Egmond’s contrition, unreserved apology and previous exemplary record.”

Therefore the Jets’ coach will serve a two match suspension unless he re-offends this season, with the sanction applying to rounds 12 and 13 of the A-League.

Van Egmond will be restricted in his access to players, the field of play and media within a five hour period on match days.
