THE FA have charged Farnborough Town owner and manager Graham Westley with improper conduct and abusive language following the recent Conference clash with Yeovil Town at Dorchester FC.

Westley was sent off from the sidelines and ordered up into the stands by referee Rayford Lee after he allegedly swore at the fourth official following Michael McIndoe's late challenge on Micky Warner.

Westley then apparantly continued to coach from the stands where he later became involved in an altercation with a steward. Police intervened and Westley was told to leave the ground and sit on the team coach to avoid further trouble.

Westley will appear before FA compliance officer Graham Bean and has been given 14 days to respond to the charges.

If found guilty he could face a touchline ban, a fine or both.

FA sopokesman Alex Stone said: "The referee's report was lodged with the compliance officer and Graham Westley was charged with breaches of E1, improper conduct, and E2, abusive language."

Yeovil chairman John Fry has complained to Conference chief John Moules about Westley's "unacceptable behaviour".

Moules added: "I can confirm we have received correspondence from Yweovil which has been passed onto the Football Association.

"The Conference is obliged to look into the matter but we will wait for the FA adjudication before any action or investigation is undertaken."

Graham Westley and FTFC were unavailable for comment.
