Stars set for appeal

THE Italo Stars Soccer Club will try to have their premier division home game ban over-turned at an appeals tribunal next Tuesday.

As reported in Saturday's Northern Star, Football Far North Coast last week decided Stars would not host any home games in the 2008 season as punishment for unruly behaviour by players and fans during the 2007 grand final.

Stars also got a monetary fine while three players received bans, ranging from one year to life, for abusing match referee Luke Mackney.

A supporter was banned for five years for spraying Mackney with beer.

Stars are waiting for FFNC to submit their official reports on the incident so they can prepare their appeal with the help of a lawyer.

The players who received a one-year and 10-year ban will appeal their penalties.

The FFNC appeals tribunal, will be a closed hearing at the Lismore Workers Club.
