YORK City co-owner Matt Uggla has been fined for his post-match comments on social media after the Minstermen's 1-1 draw with Ebbsfleet United on Saturday, December 23. 

Uggla took to social media platform X to vent his frustrations after late controversial decisions by referee John Mulligan led to a stoppage-time equaliser for Ebbsfleet, scored by goalkeeper Mark Cousins. 

Cousins' late equaliser had cancelled out Lenell John-Lewis' earlier opener, with it also being City's last Vanarama National League fixture before Christmas.

The Football Association have since responded to Uggla's comments scrutinising the referee with a £250 fine, breaching FA Rule E3. 

FA Rule E3 reads as: "It is alleged that your social media posts constitute misconduct in that they are insulting towards Match Officials and/or their integrity and/or bring the game into disrepute, contrary to FA Rule E3.1."

The FA continued by confirming that Uggla had accepted the reasoning for the charge, and had elected for a paper hearing.

Uggla had said on social media: "I’m happy to get in trouble. Refs at this level are an absolute disgrace. That guy should be demoted to Sunday league.

"Had a argument with them after and the arrogance is unmatched. Sort it out @TheVanaramaNL it’s every week.

"Also happy to say that our goal was probably a foul but it’s mistake after mistake."
