FA hearing adjouned

Saints will have to wait until January to learn their fate

THE Football Association has adjourned its hearing into payments made to players by St Albans City until the New Year.

It was understood the Saints would find out their fate today (Wednesday) but the FA has adjourned the hearing until Thursday, January 20.

The FA wouldn’t reveal why the hearing has been put back, with a spokesman telling the Herts Advertiser: “No specific reasons have been given for the adjournment.”

The FA had originally anticipated bringing an end to their enquiry by November.

When the news initially broke about the investigation the club reacted by issuing a statement which claimed they had met with the Football Association to deal with “some procedural matters relating to the 2008/2009 season”.
