Referee abandons game

LEVERINGTON A team’s home game with Queens Park Wanderers was abandoned after 55 minutes when the referee was allegedly assaulted.

Queens Park, a team from Holbeach St Marks, had already had two players sent off when their goalkeeper is alleged to have thrown his gloves at the referee in the Division Five game and the official brought the game to an end.

Leverington were leading 2-1 at the time and their manager Kevin Burton said: “It is not the sort of thing you want to see on a football pitch. Referees are already in short supply and do not need this.”
