Fuller and Lamb fined by United

THE owner of Banbury United has warned Ady Fuller and Paul Lamb that they will have to see out their contracts until the end of the season unless the pair apologise for their actions.

The former manager and his assistant won their case against the club at a Southern League hearing last week. United had given the pair 14-day notices to terminate their contracts last month.

But United were told they had to uphold the players contracts, signed two weeks before Jed McCrory took over at Spencer Stadium. After the hearing, he said the club would honour the contracts and expected to see them at every training session and every match, home and away.

Fuller and Lamb turned up last Thursday but did not appear for Saturday’s game with Barwell or for training on Tuesday. McCrory said they would be fined two-weeks wages for not turning up on Saturday and will be fined again for not appearing at training on Tuesday.

“Ady Fuller and Paul Lamb contacted me this week and said they want to be released from their contracts but I want a letter of apology from them before I agree to that. I want them to apologise to me, the club and the town.”
