15 March 2019 : Way Fined By FA After February Cheltenham Dismissal
The Football Association have published their disciplinary bulletin for February 2019. The monthly list of cases includes the action they took concerning the red card issued to Darren Way during the club's League Two match against Cheltenham Town on February 5th 2019. Way was dismissed, following his reaction to the 21st minute red card issued to defender Tom James by referee Tim Robinson.

Way subsequently had to sit out the Oldham Athletic match at Boundary Park, with Paul Terry in charge for that fixture against his old club. The club did not reveal the details behind the situation, but the FA have now revealed that Way was charged with a breach of FA Rule E3. The charge was that he "used abusive and/or insulting words towards a Match Official". After the charge was issued by the FA, Way admitted the offence, and was fined 500, with a one match touchline ban issued as the outcome of the disciplinary case.

The procedure confirms that although the FA's new yellow and red card system for 'technical area' personnel has been introduced for this season as a means of formalising disciplinary issues for coaching staff, it is only the accumulation of yellow cards that will incur an automatic ban. For red card offences, they are handled manually through the FA's fasttrack disciplinary process, with the outcome wholly depending on the circumstances involving the dismissal and the person's past disciplinary record.
