Treadwell Gibbons gets a suspended two-year ban

St George's all rounder Treadwell Gibbons Jr has been served with a suspended two-year ban from playing Cup Match and fined 50 percent of his match fee for his unsportsmanlike conduct that marred this year's two-day classic at Wellington Oval.

“In light of all the evidence presented from various parties the committee came to a unanimous conclusion,” club President Neil Paynter said in a press release. “St George's Cricket Club is willing to work with Mr Treadwell Gibbons Jr to help him achieve his goals.

“He immediately apologised to the club and he has been extremely apologetic to all of Bermuda. He has demonstrated genuine remorse and we are satisfied that this situation has been resolved appropriately.”

Gibbons landed himself in hot water for his antics following his dismissal in St George's' second innings.

The player strongly rejected the umpire's decision before venting his anger towards Somerset players and a spectator near the clubhouse.

His conduct was condemned by many in the local cricket community with former St George's Cup Match star Lee Raynor describing the player's antics as “shameful” and embarrassing”.

Gibbons apologised for his behaviour ten days after the match ended, telling reporters at a press conference “it was never an intention of mine to hurt anyone or hit anyone. My actions on the second day of Cup Match were wrong, I got caught up in the heat of the moment”.

Gibbons' suspended ban will be activated should he commit any further infractions within the two-year period.

Treadwell Gibbons has been given a suspended two-year ban for his behaviour at this year's Cup Match.
