Matt Dismissal Appeal Successful

16 January 2018

Grimsby Town Football Club are pleased to confirm that our appeal against the dismissal of Jamille Matt has been successful.

Jamille received a straight red card for violent conduct in the 89th minute, shortly after scoring in our 2-1 defeat at home to Newport County AFC on Saturday 13th January. 

After reviewing video footage of the incident, the club decided to appeal the decision on the grounds of wrongful dismissal which was considered by Members of a Regulatory Commission this afternoon.

Jamille will now be eligible to feature in our next fixture away at Colchester United on Saturday 20th January.
