The individual and the Club will be notified of the venue, date and time of the hearing.
Period of suspension:
The initial minimum period of suspension is 16 days, to commence on the second Saturday following the suspension points total being reached and must embrace a defined number of league matches and / or cup matches as instructed by the Disciplinary Committee. The initial suspension will be mandatory and may reflect other factors which would reduce the impact of the penalty, e.g. holidays or similar.

Any player reaching the suspension level for a second time during the same season will receive a suspension twice the length of the first.
