ALLANSFORD Football Netball Club will not appeal the penalties arising from Warren Keane’s outburst on Warrnambool and District league grand final day.
Cats president Nathan Adams yesterday confirmed the club would cop the sanctions handed down at an independent tribunal hearing on Wednesday night.
Keane, the Cats’ under 17½ football coach, used his post-match speech to accuse Old Collegians juniors of issuing an alleged death threat against him.
The outburst sparked an investigation by officer Roy Baker, who recommended Keane face the tribunal on an unbecoming conduct charge.
The panel banned Keane, who pleaded guilty, from holding an official role in football for three years. Allansford also received a $2000 fine.
Adams yesterday said the Cats wanted to put the matter behind them.
“We want to get over it and move on. It’s dragged on for long enough,” he said.
“We just want it over and done with.”
