Referee Assaulted Can't Post or Reply Privately

Absolutely disgraceful and unacceptable. No wonder there is a shortage of refs at lower level.



Police have launched an investigation after a football referee was attacked by a player, causing a non-league match to be abandoned.
The incident happened in the game between Sporting 50 and Sutton Common Rovers' (SCR) reserves in Surbiton, south-west London, on Saturday.
A man in his 40s was treated by paramedics for non-life threatening injuries, the Met said.
Both clubs have condemned the assault by one of SCR's players.
Following the incident SCR described the attack as "highly regrettable, wholly unacceptable and completely unforeseeable".
The club added: "We confirm that in the closing minutes of the match there was an unprovoked and cowardly incident resulting in a player striking the match official.
"Both clubs' priorities were to swiftly ensure the welfare of the official until he was deemed fit enough to make his own way home."
'Suspects had left'
In a statement released on Sunday, Sporting 50, who play in the Surrey South Eastern Combination Intermediate Division Two, said: "It was a distressing incident for all involved in which the referee was assaulted in an unprovoked attack from one of the opposition.
"Our club, nor the league, condone violence of any form and we wish the referee a speedy recovery.
"At this moment we cannot comment further as the police investigation is ongoing."
The Met Police said: "Officers were called to the venue in Kingston Road, Tolworth, at 15:16 on Saturday, 23 November."
It added: "London Ambulance Service treated the man at the scene," but "the suspects had left the ground prior to the arrival of officers.
"There have been no arrests made and enquiries are ongoing.

Firstly, my best wishes go to the referee who was assaulted.
Secondly, I hope the matter is dealt with effectively by the courts and the footballing authorities.
Awful incident.

Firstly, all the best to the referee in his recovery, not only physically but mentally too.
If the player involved plays for SCR Reserves then fleeing the scene before the police arrived is unlikely to work in his favour, unless he was not registered for them and unknown to the club too.

BBC now saying player has been banned by both Sutton CR and league. Doesn't say for how long but one would hope it's for quite a while

No mention if he's helping the police with enquiries either

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

A sine die ban and a prison sentence should be the mandatory outcomes.

One would hope it would be until the word deceased appears after his name.

12 of the 15 Sutton Common Reserves players involved in the 23rd November match appeared again yesterday - the three that did not were Lewis Salvador (GK), Gergo Petrovics who had come on as a sub after an hour, and Michael Debrah who was sent off for a second caution after 75 minutes.
