Vi­o­lence claims in U14 soc­cer

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

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.
