BANISHED boss Tom Killick has hit out over his “excessive” six-match stadium ban and called for the Football Association (FA) to review their disciplinary procedures.

The Poole Town manager was sanctioned earlier this month having admitted a charge of improper conduct and watched the fifth game of his suspension – Saturday’s 3-2 win over Cambridge City – through a skylight in the roof of groundsman Chris Kelly’s nearby home.

Killick was quick to reiterate his remorse over comments made towards referee Ben Knight after Dolphins’ 1-0 home defeat to Redditch on January 17 but revealed his frustration at how the subsequent process had unfolded.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Echo, Killick said: “I did something wrong. I deserved to be punished and I have to tough it out.

“I do not want to deflect away from what happened but I do feel the punishment was excessive and disproportionate, particularly when you look at instances of violence.

“I watched Glenn Howes have his career ended by a premeditated tackle and the perpetrator got a three-match suspension. When I think back to that, it leaves me with a sense of injustice.

“Then you look at other cases of quite extreme violence. Alan Pardew headbutted a player on the touchline last season and got a shorter ban than I did.

“I do think certain elements and the disciplinary process as a whole should be looked at. One of the biggest things is that the referees sit in changing rooms after games and write down everything that happens.

“They can consult one another and when you get a referee’s report through, it is pretty much replicated by the two assistants. That in itself is inherently wrong. It would not happen in any other environment.”

Killick serves the final match tomorrow when Poole play their Southern League Cup final second leg against title rivals Corby Town (7.45pm).

On his view from above, Killick added: “I can pretty much see the whole pitch apart from the goalmouth at the end I watch it from. It is quite a good vantage point but being detached from the players makes life difficult.

“I did not realise the significance of it at first, it just did not sink in. It is only the passage of time and games that makes you fully understand what it involves and just how much you miss.

“Thankfully, James (Wood, assistant manager), Robbie (Yates, goalkeeper coach) and the players have been relatively unaffected by it so they deserve all the credit. The personal difficulty for me is secondary.”
