[For some reason, this is also being reported on Barnsley's official site site]

FA - Richard Hill appeal - Tuesday, 11 September 2007.
At an Appeal Board hearing today, QPR assistant coach Richard Hill was allowed to retun [sic] to football with immediate effect after his ban was reduced to 12 weeks.
At the original Disciplinary Commission hearing on 22 June, Hill was suspended from all football and football management until 30 September.
He was charged with violent conduct for his part in the brawl between QPR players and members of the China U22 team on 7 February. FA

Queens Park Rangers Football Club are delighted to welcome Richard Hill and Joe Dunbar to the Club.
Hill joins John Gregory's backroom staff as a coach, while Dunbar is employed as a Sports Performance Coach.
The pair will work closely alongside the new gaffer, who was understandably pleased with their appointments: .....Hilly worked with me at Wycombe between 1996 and 1998. When I went to Aston Villa he went to Gillingham, so he knows this division very well and knows how to survive in it. He will be working alongside me.''
