Taken from FA Discipline Handbook 2013-2014

Suspensions under the match based discipline system commence 14 days from the date of the fixture.

If you have not received correspondence relating to a fixture within 7 days of the red card, you must contact the County Association immediately.

Non-receipt of paperwork is not a valid defense and a charge is issued for playing whilst under suspension for both the Club and the Player.
