English Championship Player Facing Three-Game Ban For Grabbing Opponent’s Genitals

  • EKOHOTBLOG, 24TH NOVEMBER, 2020
  • Preston North End’s Darnell Fisher is facing a three-game ban after being charged by the FA for ‘grabbing a player’s genitals.’
  • Preston have acknowledged the charge, and must decide whether they will accept it or appeal by 6pm today.

Fisher was allegedly caught by match footage grabbing at the genital area of Callum Paterson during Preston’s 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

And a statement from the FA read:

“It is alleged that an incident during the 62nd minute of the fixture, which was not seen by the match officials at the time but caught on camera, constitutes a breach of FA Rule E3.”

Preston have acknowledged the charge, and must decide whether they will accept it or appeal by 6pm today.

Video of Fisher’s grope – similar to Vinnie Jones’ infamous “tackle” on Paul Gascoigne – during Preston’s 1-0 Championship triumph went viral.

Looking to get touch-tight on Paterson on a corner, the 26-year-old seemed to cop a feel of the Scotsman’s private parts on a two occasions.

Former Cardiff forward Paterson looked incredibly confused as to what happened and looked to see if anyone had witnessed the alleged grope.

Owls boss Tony Pulis said: “I haven’t seen it but I’m sure, with everybody on social media, he’ll be up in flames if he’s done that.”

Earlier this year, England prop Joe Marler was banned for 10 weeks after grabbing the genital area of Wales lock Alun Wyn Jones.

And in August, Super League and St Helens star Tommy Makinson was suspended for five matches for a similar incident involving Castleford’s Liam Watts.
