Poole Town manager Tom Killick says he won’t waste his time appealing after he was sent the stands on Saturday.
The manager was banished from pitchside at Welling United’s Park View Road Stadium at the weekend and it’s fair to say he wasn’t happy about it.
He was unhappy with a case of mistaken identity. Will Spetch was shown a yellow card and will now face a two game ban and the boss said the referee got the wrong man.
But he won’t be knocking on the FA’s door to try and put anything right.
“We would have to send 27 videos from 28 different angles, with 54 affidavits as to why it was wrong, only to be told by the FA that it’s another match added on to the ban so we won’t be appealing,” he told the Bournemouth Echo.
His team went down 2-1 and now face a vital game on Saturday against another side trying to win a Vanarama National League South playoff place, Hampton.
“To their credit, they started better than us,” Killick admitted. “When you have had a fortnight off, you either look invigorated or lethargic and we were lethargic at the start. The early goal gave them more confidence, while we looked even shakier.”
