Due to lack of referees again we get a report of a stand-in referee being hassled by one of his own players for every decision, and this is not good enough.
League Division One KO Cup: Due to lack of referees again we get a report of a stand-in referee being hassled by one of his own players for every decision, and this is not good enough. You are supposed to respect the referee.
No wonder the leagues are short of them. Jarrolds entertained Costessey Crown in what was a fairly even game, and maybe the stand-in referee was not strong enough with some of his decisions. The game ended in a 2-2 draw, with goals for Costessey Crown by Gavin Sampson and Lewis Belton, and for Jarrolds it was Ricky Green and David Sheldrake.
Mousehold Athletic travelled to take on UEA Res in their first KO Cup game of the season. It was first blood to UEA with a goal by David Stienukie. Mousehold hit back with a goal by Joe Woodcock after it had hit the bar twice. Just before half-time UEA took the lead again with another goal by Stienukie. In the second half Mousehold Athletic took control of the game and got a well deserved equaliser through Andy Wenn's lone attack outpacing defenders to level the score at 2-2.
UEA did score again but it was disallowed for offside. Thanks to referee Nigel Raven for a good game. Again, no referee in what was a hard fought game by both Homecare Utd and Dyers Arms that had only one goal in the game, going to Homecare. It was missed chances that cost Dyers Arms again in front of goal.
Yelverton made the journey to Marlborough OB and the away side had the best of the first half, missing several chances before Lee Green scored on the stroke of half-time. In the second half the game was more even with Marlborough levelling and then Yelverton were awarded a penalty which was scored by Richard Bloomfield. A game well refereed by C Carver. Taverham took on a strong Drayton side and gave their opposition a good game, but it was the away side that ran out winners in the end 4-2.
