Sam Lavelle has been charged for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ following the game against Carlisle United on 25 November 2017.

It is alleged he committed an act of simulation which led to a penalty being awarded in the 83rd minute of the game.

He has until 6pm on 29 November 2017 to respond.

Incidents which suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation are referred to a panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player.

Each panel member will be asked to review all available video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.

Only in circumstances where the panel are unanimous would The FA issue a charge.
