Pierre FA Charges Dropped

29 November 2019

The FA Regulatory Commission has looked into the alleged incident during the Bristol Rovers.

The FA Regulatory Commission met yesterday and reviewed the appeal from Shrewsbury Town FC in relation to the alleged incident during the Bristol Rovers match in which they had charged Aaron Pierre with violent conduct following an altercation between the two teams after referee Graham Salisbury failed to award a penalty to Town.
Town appealed the decision and a detailed submission in defence of Aaron was submitted on Wednesday. 
After reviewing Town's grounds of appeal, the Members found the Charge of a breach of FA Rule E1 (a), not proven. 
Town manager Sam Ricketts thanked the FA for reviewing the incident and is now looking forward to Saturday's Emirates FA Cup game with Mansfield Town with Aaron available.
"I would like to thank the FA for taking the time to look at our comments and come up with the correct decision", said Sam.
"It was clear when looking at the whole incident that Aaron was trying to calm the situation down and play the role of peacemaker.
"We can now prepare for the Mansfield Town game with Aaron available for selection."
