Linesman’s red for abusing ref
A SUNDAY league referee sent off the LINESMAN after he gave him a tirade of abuse for giving a player a penalty.
Ref Tony Wells gave assistant John Smith his marching orders when he questioned the penalty for Barton Stacey against Clatford Arms in the Andover and District Sunday League.
Smith shouted, “shame on you”, but denies swearing.
He’s been charged with improper conduct and faces an FA disciplinary hearing.
