Meanwhile, all York Senior League clubs have been warned about the use of social media by players and officials.

A statement said: “The surge in popularity of websites, Facebook, Twitter and blogs has resulted in a massive increase in the publication of inappropriate material.

“This can vary in degree from being mildly irritating to downright offensive text which causes distress, embarrassment and inconvenience to clubs and their members.

“It should be remembered that what seems to be humorous to the ‘poster’ may be seen to be offensive to the ‘reader’ and is available for perusal by millions.

“The League Committee will take a dim view of inappropriate material appearing in any of the above formats and will take strong action against any individual found to be responsible.

“Action will also be taken against the individual’s club and may involve substantial fines, loss of league points, relegation or expulsion.”
