Guiseley’s John Rooney has had his red card against FC Halifax Town on Saturday overturned.

Rooney was shown a straight red by referee Andrew Miller just before half-time after a mass melee inside the Guiseley penalty area had broken out.

But the FA have upheld Guiseley’s claim that the midfielder was wrongfully dismissed.

At a meeting of an FA Regulatory Commission held today, the members considered Guiseley’s claim of wrongful dismissal and ruled that it was a case of wrongful dismissal.
