Joss Labadie withdraws 10-match ban appeal

Torquay United's Joss Labadie withdraws his appeal to overturn a 10-match ban for biting.

Torquay United have confirmed that Joss Labadie has withdrawn his appeal to overturn a 10-match ban for biting.

The League Two club announced on Monday that they were looking to challenge the Football Association's decision to suspend the 23-year-old following an incident against Chesterfield on February 15.

However, Labadie has now accepted a charge of misconduct and will serve out his punishment.

"Torquay United can confirm that Joss Labadie has decided to withdraw his appeal and accept the FA charge for misconduct," read an official club statement. "Joss will now serve his 10-match ban with immediate effect."

In accepting the suspension, Labadie will now miss the rest of the season.
