SHCSL Division One - Saturday 1st Feb - Wombwell Main Development vs WTFC
Match Report: Town Pay the Price!
The Wellers fell to their second defeat in the league this season after a disputed penalty broke the deadlock in a game with very few shots on target.
Once again referee Andrew Price made himself centre of things when he judged a possible foul outside the box as inside on 56 minutes.
Mr Price was in charge for the trip to AFC Dronfield earlier in the season where there were more red cards than goals.
On this occasion the Wombwell Main player felt the slightest of touches on the shoulder and threw himself to the ground as though a sniper was in the trees and the ref fell for it.
The Wellers should have made their earlier chances count with efforts from Jake Padgett, Brad Kerr and Joe Oliver all going over the crossbar or wide.
Mr Price showed his remorseless side again on 77 minutes when he showed Gareth McDermott a straight red card for going for the ball.
McDermott had been fouled in the build up with nothing given and trying to win the ball back tackled and made no contact. The Main bench and players surrounded the referee and made sure the red was shown.
At this point the visitors gave up hope of getting anything and the referee had the final say once more when he sin binned Luke Norbury in added time, just to add to the pain.
Match Result: Wombwell Main Development 1, Wombwell Town 0.
