Newport County defender Ryan Inniss has been handed a five-match ban by the FA for biting.

Inniss was sent off for violent conduct in an EFL Trophy game which County lost 5-4 to West Ham U21s on Wednesday, September 4 and was charged last week.

The 6ft 5in centre-back, on loan from Crystal Palace, was dismissed late on for the incident which involved 18-year-old Hammers left-back Reece Hannam.

An FA statement read: “Ryan Inniss has admitted a breach and been immediately suspended for his next five first-team competitive matches by an independent Regulatory Commission.

“The standard three-match ban which would normally apply was clearly insufficient.”

Speaking immediately after the match, County boss Michael Flynn admitted he could not defend the loanee.

He said: “Their player said he got bitten, so I’ll have a look at that and find out what happened.

“If he has bitten him, it’s inexcusable and I won’t be fighting his corner.”

The 24-year-old, who has captained Palace’s reserve side and is now on his ninth loan deal away from Selhurst Park, will now miss Newport’s matches against Northampton, Macclesfield, Exeter, Swindon and Carlisle.
