Badgers facing probe
2:50pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Sport
LEIGH and Bransford Badgers Football Club are facing disciplinary action after their game with Riverside was abandoned when players clashed.
Trouble flared during the McDonald’s Worcester and District League Sunday Division Five match between the two sides at Pitchcroft, in Worcester.
A player from each side was sent off with 11 minutes remaining, after which it is alleged that Leigh and Bransford refused to play on, bringing a halt to the match, which Riverside were leading 3-0.
Both teams are set to be charged with failing to control their players and will have their cases heard together in due course. The clubs could be given warnings as to their future conduct and could also face financial penalties.
League secretary Tim Phillips said: “I have received the referee’s report and I am awaiting an explanation from Leigh and Bransford, which will be discussed at our league management committee meeting.”
In Division Three, Colwall Village’s game with GDL Athletic was abandoned after 81 minutes due to a back injury sustained by Colwall goalkeeper Ryan Clarke.
