It’s been confirmed today that AFC Wimbledon have been charged by the Football League for the use of an ‘ineligible player’.

Jake Nicholson, a former youngster with Tottenham Hotspur, joined Wimbledon back in February following his release by Scottish outfit Morton. He made his debut, and scored too, against Cheltenham in a 4-3 win last month.

Since that appearance he’s made a further two appearances but the Football League have now charged the Dons with fielding him as an ineligible player in that Cheltenham win.

A statement from the club on the official website read: ‘We will be represented at the hearing by Jim Sturman QC and he has advised us that it would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time.

‘As soon as the outcome of the hearing has been determined we will publish the background to this charge.’

Wimbledon will go before a Football Disciplinary Commission on 28 April with it suggested that a points penalty could be imposed? The Dons currently sit in 14th place in league two some nine-points ahead of the relegation places.
