Steve Evans


Recommended Posts

Following an Independent Regulatory Commission held on Wednesday 5 September 2012, Rotherham United manager Steve Evans has been given a six-match stadium ban and fined £3000.

Mr Evans was charged with using abusive and/or indecent and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards a participant in or around the dressing room area at the end of the Bradford City versus Crawley Town Football League Two fixture on 27 March 2012. It was further alleged that the breach included a reference to gender, a breach of FA Rule E3(2). Mr Evans denied the charge and requested a personal hearing.

The Commission found that Mr Evans had used abusive and insulting words and behaviour towards a participant in or around the dressing room area at the end of the fixture which did include a reference to gender. The Commission did not find that Mr Evans had used indecent words or behaviour.

Mr Evans has informed The Football Association that he does not wish to appeal the decision and therefore the sanction is now imposed with immediate effect.

The stadium ban will prevent Mr Evans from attending the ground at which Rotherham United's first team are playing at any time during a match day.

[size=4]Orrible pig. This was from the Daily mail a few months ago. Must be this he's been done for??[/size]

[size=4]Controversial manager Steve Evans has found himself in hot water again after being accused of exposing himself to a female member of staff from Bradford City.

The Rotherham boss allegedly pulled down his trousers in front of the woman on the night of the ill-tempered League Two clash between the Bantams and Evans' old club Crawley Town in March.

The game ended amid farcical scenes with five players shown red cards after the match for coming to blows in the closing minutes of normal time.

At some point afterwards, it is claimed Evans was seen to perform the lewd act outside the changing rooms.

The FA have confirmed an investigation is underway but refused to comment when pressed about specifics. Evans, too, didn't comment when asked by the Argus.

Bradford City director Roger Owen added: 'The football club can confirm that a complaint has been made to the appropriate authorities following an incident at Valley Parade after the game with Crawley Town on March 27.

'We understand that the authorities will determine what action, if any, they are going to take. The matter is now out of the hands of Bradford City and we have no further comment to make.'

Evans left his post at Crawley, who subsequently won promotion to League One, in April to become Rotherham manager.[/size]
