Owia F.C Under-17 Football Team will not be punished for walking off the field in last Thursday’s North East Under-17 Football Championship against S.V United at the Colonarie Playing Field.
Owia F.C staged the walk off after one of their players had been shown a red card and put off the field by the Referee. They also claimed that a member of S. V United was substituted and allowed to return to the game. The Referee denied the accusation and explained that the player had left the field to change his shirt and was not substituted.
The Disciplinary Committee of the North East Football League considered all the circumstances of the incident and decided that the team would not be punished on this occasion.
