Violence claims in U14 soccer
ALLEGATIONS of an onfield brawl and assaults have marred an under-14 B boys soccer match between Glenorchy and Clarence.
Football Federation Tasmania chief executive Mike Palmer last night said the association would wait to receive the referee’s report tomorrow before deciding if any official action would be taken.
“We’ve got a sport where we don’t have too many issues, so that report is certainly a surprise and out of the box for this season,” Mr Palmer said.
“We’d be keen to receive the referees report [on Monday] and judge it on its merits.”
Witnesses yesterday contacted the Sunday Tasmanian about the match at Prince of Wales grounds, alleging two Glenorchy players were kicked in the face in separate incidents before several players from both sides were involved in a scuffle.
