Football: FA and Football League to investigate Bristol Rovers claims



First published in Gloucestershire Sport

THE FA and Football League will investigate Bristol Rovers’ claims that Wycombe Wanderers breached third party ownership rules.

Rovers, who were relegated to the Football Conference on goal difference, made the allegations over payments made by their rivals in a letter to both governing bodies and argue that Wycombe gained a competitive advantage over them.

A club statement said: “Bristol Rovers FC has received responses from both the Football League and the FA to its allegations concerning the competitive advantage Wycombe Wanderers obtained from breaching Third Party Investment Regulations.

“Both the FA and the Football League have indicated they take the allegations seriously and shall be investigating them without further delay. Wycombe Wanderers FC have failed to respond.

“The allegations relate to payments made and agreements in existence during the last season in which Bristol Rovers were relegated on goal difference.

“The club reserves all it rights following the investigations under way by the FA and the Football League.”
