The current administration charge for a single caution is £10. This must be paid within 14 days of the date of notification via the Whole Game System. There is no appeal against a caution except in the case of mistaken identity. Any cases or alleged cases of mistaken identity must be made to the County Football Association in writing within 48 hours of the match date by the club and the player. The matter will then be investigated. Initially it is the club's responsibility to pay the fine and complete the caution form online via the Whole Game System, giving full details of the player. Players over 16 years of age must then reimburse the club. Any other clubs he plays for should also be included on the form.

Please see FA Disciplinary Handbook

A player, club official or a club has the right of appeal against any charge levied. The cost of a personal hearing is £25 or £100 depending upon the level of football. If the charge is subsequently found proved then the appellant would pay the adjusted costs of the hearing as well as losing his personal hearing fee. 

Clubs which fail to return acknowledgement forms and monies owed by the due date will be subject to additional fines. That could in turn result in the suspension of the team/club should the rules not be adhered to.  

If you are in any doubt or have any questions regarding personal hearings, contact the County Office on 01480 414422.
