MORTON have found themselves the subject of an SFA probe after Hampden chiefs issued a notice of complaint for taking part in an alleged illegal bounce game at the beginning of the month.

Ton’s reserves faced off against Evro Football Pro Football Academy at Benburb’s New Tinto Park, allegedly without any prior permission according to SFA chiefs, despite the club confirming in the summer that they had been placed in cold storage for a year.

The notice of complaint states that the club were in breach of Disciplinary Rules 26 and 27, where SFA member clubs cannot be involved in a friendly match without prior written approval of the board.

Rule 27 states that any SFA member clubs cannot participate in, organise or promote any football matches involving clubs or teams who are not under the jurisdiction of the SFA without written permission.

Ton faced off against the Glasgow-based Pro Youth Academy twice in a matter of weeks at the end of February and beginning of March.

Both games were filmed and put up online which sparked the reaction from Hampden bosses.

The fielded team across both games included first-team players such as Zander Easdale, Lewis McGrattan and Darren Hynes.

A hearing will be held at Hampden in the middle of next month where the club will find out any potential repercussions that they may face.

When approached by the Telegraph for comment, a club spokesperson said:

“The club have been made aware of the notice of complaint.

“We are dealing with the situation co-operating with the authorities.

“Given the situation the club will not be able to comment further at this time."
