Confirmation from Suffolk FA regarding the playing of friendlies with regards to suspensions.


  • Those teams still with competitive fixtures (league cup, county cup) and have a player suspended due to misconduct (all football) will not be permitted to play nor will the game count towards any suspension.

  • Those teams who are not in any further cups or leagues so therefore ending their competitive fixtures, will be permitted to play as season has closed and their suspension will restart next season

  • Those players with standard charges (red cards or accumulative suspensions) will be permitted to play as the fixtures are categorised as friendlies.

  • Match officials must continue to report both standard charges and misconduct for friendly fixtures as well as adopt the correct processes in the Laws of The Game. Failure to do so will lead to disciplinary action.
