New bans for grassroots players who abuse officials

The Football Association is introducing tough new rules to crack down on players who abuse officials at grassroots level.

The rules are as follows:

- Minimum five-year ban for players who assault an official

- 84-day ban and £100 fine for any players who make physical contact with an official

-Minimum ban of 56 days, or six matches, and minimum £50 fine for any player that threatens an official

The new rules will be imposed from the 2017/18 season.
