Joyce red card decision upheld
Carlisle United can confirm that the appeal against the red card shown to midfielder Luke Joyce has been rejected by an FA Review Panel this afternoon.
The Cumbrians submitted video and written evidence to support the appeal but the panel decided that the first half dismissal handed out by referee Rob Lewis at Wycombe on Saturday was a correct decision.
Club secretary Sarah McKnight said: “We felt we had a very good case for the red card to be overturned, hence the decision to take it to appeal.
“Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case. We have asked if we can be given the reasons for the outcome, but we can confirm that the appeals process is now at its conclusion.”
Joyce will now serve a three match suspension, effective immediately.
