SCALLY FUMES AT GILLS’ FA RAP
GILLINGHAM chairman Paul Scally has bemoaned the Football Association’s decision to fine the club £4,750 for failing to control their players in last month’s win at Millwall.
Scally was joined by manager Justin Edinburgh and three Gillingham players at a personal hearing and their punishment follows a £2,500 fine dished out for the same offence in defeat to Burton Albion the week prior to their trip to The Den.
But Scally, in his 21st year as Gills chairman, wants to meet with Kent FA chairman Barry Bright to air his grievances – if he can track him down.
“I haven’t heard neither sight nor sound of Barry Bright for around two years,” said Scally. “Considering we are his only professional football club in Kent and, wearing his KCFA hat, I am astonished.
“I believe one of his roles as chairman of the KCFA is to support the clubs in his area. He has not been near me while all this turmoil has been going on.
“He has not even had the courtesy to make contact with me to discuss my problems with the FA. I have asked my secretary to call him and ask him to come for a meeting.”
FURIOUS: Paul Scally
