Rochdale groundsman sanctioned and suspended for racial abuse

Rochdale head groundsman Joshua Haigh has been suspended for six weeks after being found guilty of racially abusing a member of the media following a game against Stockport County in February.

Haigh’s conduct was deemed to be an “aggravated breach” of FA Rule E3 following an investigation by an Independent Regulatory Commission. Haigh denied the charge and has the right to appeal.

The six-week suspension includes all football-related activity and includes a stadium ban for the matchday of any Rochdale fixture during that time, running up until and including November 20.

He is also required to take an FA education course and pay £2,000 towards the commission’s costs. 

He has also been warned about his future conduct.
