The Newcastle Jets have today been informed by Football Federation Australia (FFA) that the Independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee has delivered their determination on the red card issued to Roy O’Donovan in the 2018 Hyundai A-League Grand Final.
Roy has been issued with a suspension of ten (10) Hyundai A-League matches and/or FFA Cup matches.
The Newcastle Jets are extremely disappointed with the outcome of this hearing and will immediately lodge an appeal on O’Donovan’s behalf.
The club would like to thank Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) for their support of Roy during this process, and their tireless work in building his defence.
The club will make no further comment on the matter at this time, and will await advice from the FFA on the details of an appeal hearing.
