Ta­ble-top­pers Ham­p­den are shown the door

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

JC MSFL Di­vi­sion Five lead­ers Ham­p­den Square have been thrown out of the league af­ter a com­mit­tee hear­ing found them guilty of ob­jec­tion­able con­duct.

Af­ter a hear­ing headed by league chair­man David Wolff, a state­ment fwas is­sued which said: “Ham­p­den were found guilty of the charge levied against them un­der our rule 17(b) fol­low­ing com­plaints from op­po­nents in two of their matches. They have been pun­ished un­der sec­tion two of this rule. The club are ex­cluded from fur­ther par­tic­i­pa­tion in the com­pe­ti­tion and their record is ex­punged.”

Wolff told JC Sport: “The man­age­ment com­mit­tee have dealt with the com­plaints from FC Maryle­bone and South Man­cu­ni­ans in their re­spec­tive games, to­gether with a counter-com­plaint from Ham­p­den Square against FC Maryle­bone. We re­moved the club rather than cer­tain play­ers as we could not iden­tify spe­cific in­di­vid­u­als. The league were com­pletely sat­is­fied that FC Maryle­bone were not guilty and will not take any ac­tion against them.”

Ham­p­den striker Joel Nathan said: “We are con­sid­er­ing an ap­peal as we do not think it is right to pun­ish the whole team.”
