WIMBORNE Town will face no further action from the Southern League after being fined by the Football Association for a rule breach involving Cherries goalkeeper Pat O’Flaherty.
The 19-year-old, who is a member of the under-21 squad at Vitality Stadium, spent the first half of the season on loan at Cuthbury.
But it emerged he made 12 appearances for the Southern League outfit between August and September before his temporary transfer had been authorised by the FA.
Wimborne were subsequently charged with a failure to comply with an FA rule and fined £150 after admitting the breach.
However, they will face no further sanctions with a statement from the league to the Daily Echo reading: “The matter has been discussed by the league’s board and no further action is being taken against the club following written observations from them.”
Wimborne were condemned to a 3-0 defeat by Yate in their penultimate home game of the season yesterday.
Jack Ball opened the scoring after 53 minutes before late goals from Connor Jones and Jack Camm sealed victory for the visitors.
Magpies will be hoping for better fortunes when they travel to Salisbury tomorrow (3pm).
