LONDON (AP) — Everton’s points deduction for a breach of the Premier League's financial rules has been reduced from 10 to six following an appeal, the competition said Monday. Everton appealed against the initial decision of an independent commission that was made in November last year. The league says an independent appeals board upheld two of Everton's nine grounds for appeal, leading to the points deduction being trimmed by four. It means Everton moves up two places to 15th, five points above
The club will now move on to 25 points in the Premier League table and up to 15th place.
An existing member of staff at each of the 24 clubs will be appointed and receive specialised training.
