Referee abandons local game

A local Cambs League Division 5D game between Estover Park Reserves and March Rangers Reserves was abandoned on Saturday after a player is alleged to have attempted to head-butt the referee.

The incident came in the 79th minute when referee Andy Wallace showed a red card to Estover’s Gareth Puleston for a second bookable offence.

Estover Park’s Gary Davis said: “The club are embarrassed by the incident and the matter will be dealt with internally by the club.”

Puleston is likely to face a charge of improper behaviour towards a referee and causing a game to be abandoned from the Cambridgeshire Football Association.

March Rangers were winning 5-0 at the time of the incident.
