PJ Gets Two Game Ban

Striker Paul Sludden has been given a two-game Scottish FA suspension following his sending-off in Sunday’s Lowland League match against Spartans at Ochilview.

It means Paul will miss this weekend’s league trip to bottom side Preston Athletic and the visit to Raydale Park to face Gretna 2008 on 11th February.

He was dismissed midway through the second half of Sunday’s match after this challenge led to a straight red card.

It’s a two match ban due to the fact that it’s the player’s second red card this season. Paul was sent-off in the 4-1 Ochilview win over Cumbernauld Colts in September.

He will be eligible to return for the Ochilview game against Whitehill Welfate on 18th February but both Connor Greene and Andy Rodgers will both be missing for the visit of the Rosewell club after each picked up their sixth booking of the season in the Spartans match, triggering a one-game Scottish FA suspension.
