The Guernsey Football Association said a new match-based disciplinary system was introduced for the 2011/12 season by the FA to offer clarity over disciplinary issues.
The GFA said: "It was agreed at the beginning of the season that the Priaulx League and Combined Counties League should be classified as the same type of football (Saturday) for disciplinary purposes.
"As a result, suspensions incurred in Priaulx League football apply for Combined Counties Games and vice-versa."
The GFA said following Kieran Mahon's second dismissal of the season was suspended for two of North's Saturday-type fixtures and would be unable to play CCL fixtures until that suspension had been served.
The suspension does not apply to representative or non-Saturday type football.
