Luton Town deny FA charges

The Football Association have confirmed that League One side Luton have denied all 17 charges levelled at them in relation to payments to agents between July 2004 and February 2007.

Luton, whose administrator announced last night that 'more than one' takeover bid has been received for the club, have now requested a personal hearing.

The charges, which were made in November, relate to payments to agents for nine specific player negotiations made through the club's holding company, Jayten Stadium Limited, rather than through the club as required by FA rules.

They also cover provision of misleading information to the FA, not holding representation contracts with the relevant agents for the above negotiations and dealing with unlicensed agents.

Former chairman Bill Tomlins has admitted seven charges of being allegedly involved in the rule breaches but has denied a further eight. He has also requested a personal hearing.

Former finance director Derek Peter has denied nine charges of approving payments made by Jayten Stadium Limited and requested a personal hearing.

Directors John Mitchell and Richard Bagehot have both denied failing to report the alleged rule breaches when they became aware of them and have requested personal hearings.

Agents Sky Andrew, Mike Berry, Mark Curtis, Stephen Denos, David Manasseh and Andrew Mills were all charged with allegedly failing to ensure that payments were made and disclosed through the proper channels and failing to enter into representation contracts as required.

Andrew, Curtis and Mills have denied both charges and requested personal hearings.

Denos, Mannaseh and Berry each admitted the charge relating to representation contracts and denied the other charge with Denos requesting a personal hearing.

If found guilty, those charged could face a wide range of sanctions including fines, suspensions, withdrawal of licences or possible points deduction for the club.

An FA spokesman confirmed that no dates have yet been scheduled for any of the personal hearings.
