Dion Charles: FA Ruling

The FA have confirmed the sanctions imposed against Wanderers’ forward Dion Charles following a breach of rules relating to historic tweets.

Charles has been warned as to his future conduct and ordered to attend a mandatory face-to-face education programme.

The 26-year-old – who was charged after joining Wanderers in January – admitted that the comments posted several years ago were contrary to FA rules E3.1 and E3.2.

The sanctions were imposed by an independent Regulatory Commission.

Charles previously apologised for his actions and in February attended an anti-discrimination event for local schoolchilden hosted by Bolton Wanderers in the Community and ant-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card.
