Cheltenham midfielder Kyle Storer has been banned for eight games by the FA after admitting violent conduct.
The charge relates to an incident involving Lincoln defender Bradley Wood during the first half of the Robins' final Vanarama National League match of the season on April 30.
The FA has not disclosed reasons why the suspension is considerably longer than the standard three-game ban given for violent conduct.
The 29-year-old, who started every league game last season as his side won the title, has also been fined £750 and warned about his future conduct after the case was heard by the Independent Regulatory Commission on Thursday.
He will now miss the start of Cheltenham's Sky Bet League Two campaign, which starts in August.
A statement on Cheltenham's official website reads: "The club is awaiting the written report from the FA before considering any further course of action."
