John Yems handed a three-match ban by the FA.

3 March 2022

A statement from the FA reads:

John Yems has been suspended from the touchline for three matches and fined £2250 after admitting a consolidated charge for four breaches of FA Rule E3. 

The Crawley Town FC manager used abusive and insulting words towards a match official following the end of their EFL League 2 fixture against Hartlepool United FC on Saturday 12 February 2022. He also used abusive and insulting words and gestures towards a match official following his dismissal.

In addition, comments made by John Yems during media interviews for Crawley Town FC’s channels and a local newspaper following the same fixture constituted improper conduct as they are personally offensive and attack the integrity of the match official and bring the game into disrepute.  

An independent Regulatory Commission was subsequently convened and imposed the above sanction during a paper hearing.
