sport news West Ham Women's player Hawa Cissoko receives two-match ban and £200 fine ... trends now

West Ham defender Hawa Cissoko has been hit with a two-match ban and a £200 fine after punching Aston Villa's Sarah Mayling during a WSL clash between the two sides last month.

The incident occurred in the 91st minute, when the pair came together and Cissoko aimed a strike at Mayling.

She was swiftly shown a red card, but the resulting melee saw both teams struggle to control their players, while the coaching staff of the two sides also got involved. After an investigation into the chaotic scenes, the FA confirmed Cissoko's suspension on Wednesday, while also handing out sanctions to the two teams and West Ham boss Paul Konchesky.

The FA statement read: 'Aston Villa Women FC and West Ham United Women FC have been fined £1,000 each for breaching FA Rule E20 at their match in the Women’s Super League on Saturday 15 October 2022.

'Both clubs denied failing to ensure that their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 91st minute. An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently found their charges to be proven and imposed these fines during a hearing.

'Hawa Cissoko has been given a two-match suspension and £200 fine for two breaches of FA Rule E3. The West Ham United Women FC defender accepted that her behaviour following the offence that she got sent off for was violent but denied it was also improper after that in the technical area. The independent Regulatory Commission found the second charge to be proven and imposed her sanctions.

'Paul Konchesky and Jack Hopkins have been fined £325 and £250 for also breaching FA Rule E3. The West Ham United Women FC manager and Aston Villa Women FC Operations Assistant accepted and denied that their behaviour in the 91st minute was improper. The independent Regulatory Commission found the charge against Jack Hopkins to be proven and imposed both of their sanctions.

'The independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for all of these decisions will be published on TheFA.com at the earliest opportunity.'
