Spurs appealed against the penalties imposed by the F.A. enquiry into the charge of misconduct.
Chairman, Alan Sugar, presented Spurs’ case against the 12 point deduction, F.A.Cup ban and the £600,000 fine.
After considering the case, the Appeal panel halved the points deduction to six but increased the fine to £1,500,000 as well as maintaining the Cup ban.
Sugar was not satisfied and immediately announced that Spurs would again appeal against the penalties that had been imposed against the club. Sugar felt most aggrieved that the misconduct charges had been under a previous regime at the club and also that he had tried to co-operate with the F.A. over the investigation.
