Savoy ri­vals pay up after red card out­burst

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Sport -

MYRTLE­FORD will re­ceive $1000 from ri­vals Wan­garatta to cover costs to fix a win­dow and doors dam­aged by a Red Dev­ils player dur­ing this year’s La Fiera Cup clash.

Wan­garatta de­fender Stoy­cho Ivanov caused the dam­age in the away clu­b­rooms after be­ing sent off late in the the May 27 match.

Ivanov dam­aged two doors as he en­tered the chang­e­rooms and later broke a win­dow as he watched the fi­nal min­utes of his side’s 2-1 win from afar.

Myrtle­ford and Wan­garatta soc­cer clubs fronted the Al­bury Wodonga Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion pow­ers last week where they set­tled on a com­pen­sa­tion fig­ure.

Myrtle­ford pres­i­dent Zac Mirt said he was glad both par­ties could come to an agree­ment on what should be paid.

“It took a while to get to this stage but we’re happy to see things re­solved,” he said.

“Although it’s prob­a­bly not go­ing to cover the ex­tent of the dam­age we want to move for­ward, and we see this as a pos­i­tive con­clu­sion.”

Mirt said the bro­ken win­dow was fixed im­me­di­ately after the in­ci­dent while the dam­aged doors will soon be re­placed.
