 Football Club chairman Mike Harris has been given a suspended 10 match ground suspension from the FA of Wales.

The Trewern businessman, who owns and chairs The New Saints in the Cymru Premier League, has also received an undisclosed fine after being found guilty of contravening FAW social media regulations.

The TNS chairman has been notified of his punishment by the FAW which conveyed a disciplinary panel on September 26 and decreed Harris guilty of breaching FAW social media regulations on August 9.

An FAW statement read: 'In accordance with paragraph 4.3 of the FAW’s Social Media Regulations, Mr Harris was charged pursuant to the FAW’s Non-Discrimination Regulations under FAW Rule 38.1.1, for his alleged offensive and/or insulting and/or abusive words, which were contemptuous and/or discriminatory and/or denigratory and published from his Twitter account on or around 9 August 2019.

'After considering the written and verbal evidence submitted, the panel decided that the charge against Mr Harris be found proven.

'The panel further decided that Mr Harris should be subject to a Ground Suspension – as defined in the FAW’s Categories of Suspension – for 10 matches in League and Cup competitions.

'This suspension is wholly suspended and only invoked if Mr Harris is found proven of a similar offence before January 1, 2021.

The panel also decided that Mr Harris should be fined, half the sum of which shall remain suspended and only invoked if Mr Harris is found proven of a similar offence before January 1, 2021.

Mr Harris may refer this matter to an Appeals Panel of the FAW.
