Under the Hyundai A-League Disciplinary Regulations (the Regulations), Young may refer the matter to the independent Disciplinary and Ethics Committee for hearing and determination of the sole question of either:

  • what additional sanction should be imposed above the minimum sanction (inclusive of the Mandatory Match Suspension which must be served), applying the Range at the Table of Offences; or
  • whether Exceptional Circumstances apply and therefore a sanction outside the Range at the Table of Offences should be imposed, provided always that the Mandatory Match Suspension must be served.

Young has until 2:00pm (AEDT) Tuesday, 5 February 2019 to advise whether he wishes to appeal the three (3) match sanction proposed by the MRP.
