The Football Association has announced the 13-man panel, made up of former managers, players and referees, which will review alleged incidents of diving in the new season.

They will independently review clear cases of what is officially known as “the successful deception of a match official”.



If all three members of the panel agree that a player successfully tricked the referee into awarding a penalty or getting a rival sent off, a charge will follow which carries a two-match ban.

The eight former managers and players on the FA list are: Nigel Adkins, Rachel Brown-Finnis, Terry Butcher, Lee Dixon, Alex McLeish, Danny Murphy, Chris Powell and Trevor Sinclair.

The five ex-match officials are: Keren Barratt, Steve Dunn, Mike Mullarkey, Alan Wiley and Eddie Wolstenholme.

These names will only be called upon to review footage from a game when there is an obvious case to answer and any conflicts of interest the individuals may have in regards to clubs they have played for or managed, will be taken into account.
