Morecambe face FA misconduct charge following ‘mass confrontation’ during Salford game

Morecambe FC has been charged with misconduct after an incident during their game against Salford City last weekend.

Both teams are charged with a breach of Football Association rules following an incident deep in stoppage time at the end of the game at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium, which the Shrimps won 1-0.

Salford midfielder Matt Lund was sent off for violent conduct after kicking out at Morecambe player Jacob Davenport, leading to an altercation involving players from both sides. There was a further incident around the tunnel and technical areas as Lund left the field of play.

In a statement from The FA, they said: ‘’Morecambe and Salford City have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1 following a mass confrontation that took place during the 94th minute of their EFL League Two game on Saturday, 2 September.

‘’It’s alleged that both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

The clubs are required to respond by Monday, September 11.
