Fotheringham appeals 'racism' ban
East Fife's Kevin Fotheringham
Fotheringham was given an eight-match ban
East Fife midfielder Kevin Fotheringham has received an eight-match ban following accusations he racially abused Stranraer's Gregory Tade.

The 32-year-old's club have appealed against the ban, which follows an incident involving French midfielder Tade on 2 January.

The SFA said Fotheringham had been found guilty of unacceptable conduct during the Third Division match.

East Fife said the club would "continue to support our player 100%".

In a statement, the SFA said: "Kevin Fotheringham was found guilty of unacceptable conduct as a consequence of remarks made towards player Gregory Tade and an eight-match ban was imposed."

Fotheringham was accompanied by East Fife chief executive Sid Collumbine and team-mate Paul Stewart at the hearing.

The appeal will be heard by the disciplinary appeals tribunal and the ban is therefore set aside pending the outcome of the hearing.

A date has yet to be set for the hearing.
