Forest Green's Alsop given FA ban
Julian Alsop
Alsop has played for three different clubs this season
Forest Green striker Julian Alsop has been suspended until 31 May after a Football Association disciplinary hearing, reports BBC Radio Oxford.

The decision follows a training ground incident earlier this season, which occurred while Alsop was with Oxford - for which he was sacked by the U's.

The 31-year-old has until 27 January, when the ban takes effect, to appeal.

But Rovers chairman Trevor Horsley has said that no immediate decision will be made over the player's future.

Horsley explained: "Any decision on his future at Forest Green Rovers will be made either after this period, or after his appeal is heard.

"In the meantime, he remains a member of our playing squad and will continue to train with us as normal."

Alsop began the season at Oxford before having a brief spell with Northampton, and joined Forest Green last month, signing a contract until the end of the season.

He is currently serving a separate three-match ban for the red card he received against Aldershot on New Year's Day - having lost his appeal for unfair dismissal just over a week ago.
