Airbus UK Broughton FC can confirm that Striker Chris Simm has been handed a 6 Game Suspension and additional fine (Subject to appeal process) related to 2 Misconduct Charges issued by the FAW Compliance Dept. The charge is no way related to Airbus UK Broughton FC and relates to private conversations on Simm's personal twitter account that in fact in one instance took place prior to Simm signing for Airbus UK Broughton.
Although Airbus UK Broughton FC recognises that Chris Simm had statements from the individuals involved in the conversations to support his case, the club also recognises how inappropriate comments made on social media can be perceived by the general public and third parties.
Airbus UK Broughton FC reiterates its support for the FAW `off the Pitch` Campaign, and its recommendations regarding social media, and will discuss the matter internally before deciding whether further action will be taken. We will also be further reinforcing our policy regarding the use of social media with staff and players.
The Club will be making no further comment on this subject.
