'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cheating and Gamesmanship Issues Addressed at AGM

Football League chairmen have said that they are to be making moves to try and drum cheating out of the game.

Cheating and Gamesmanship issues are being addressed as well as the problem that the game has with cheating and diving, the managers of each team will be spoken to about the problems.

The 72 clubs, meeting at their summer conference, unanimously backed the proposals put forward by Exeter City chairman Edward Chorlton.

A statement from the Football League said: 'Clubs will undertake to instruct managers, coaches and players accordingly - in particular to discourage actions which bring the game's reputation into disrepute, such as: showing disrespect to match officials; those actions that undermine a sporting culture including diving/simulation, time wasting and feigning injury.'

The League want referees to use their powers to stop the obstruction of the quick free kick by players and cut down on the amount of ground gained while taking a throw in.
