St Mirren board discipline Jim Goodwin over Aidan Connolly elbow
The Buddies say they're extremely disappointed in the player/assistant coach's conduct.
St Mirren have disciplined Jim Goodwin and expressed their disappointment in their player/coach after he was handed a three-match ban for elbowing Dundee United's Aidan Connolly.
As revealed by STV on Tuesday, the Paisley side will not contest the charge, with the defender now missing matches against Partick Thistle, Hamilton and Inverness CT.
In a statement, the Buddies board said they had punished the Irishman and warned him about his future conduct.
This is the third time that Goodwin has been found guilty of violent conduct in the past three years and the second time the player has been cited this year.
In a statement on the club's website, St Mirren said: "The board met with Jim Goodwin today.
"Jim and the club have accepted the offer of a fixed penalty from the Scottish FA.
"The club are disappointed in Jim’s conduct given that this is not the first time he has been guilty of an offence of this nature.
"The club have taken internal disciplinary action, which the player accepts. Neither the club or player will be making further comment on matter."
