THE Football Association have ruled that AFC Wimbledon must pay fellow Blue Square South side Braintree Town �3,500 in compensation following the summer signing of Chris Sullivan.

The 21-year-old striker played 47 of Braintree's 52 matches last season and ended the campaign as the club's second top-goalscorer.

AFC Wimbledon signed the player in the summer, however the two clubs could not agree over a compensation figure.

At an independent tribunal at The Football Association's Soho Square base, the governing body ruled that The Iron should be paid �3,500, together with a further 15% of any subsequent profit made on any future transfer of Sullivan.
