Looking at the results so far, Stanes have had some mixed results - ditto with KV Wht. As we know in O35's, so much depends on players numbers and whether key players are available.
Sounds like this weeks game between Toonie and Stanes has all the possibility of being a really good game. Might make my way down to watch this one. Do Stanes have an away strip? Otherwise there might be some significant confusion on the field.

hov/beeper, i think you'll find it's the home team's responsibility to supply an alternate strip. happened to us in our first home game against kv blk; we had an official ref and he said it was up to the home team or else it would be a forfeit.
Toonie start with 16 ( a record 5 on the bench). Greys with 12.
Greys go one up after 5 min after a sliced clearance from a Toonie defender deflects into the net.
5 min later Toonie equalise with a nice through ball and our striker chips the keeper.
A Greys defender then gives the ref a verbal spray because he thought the goal was offside. End result he gets sent off. Greys down to 10.
A few minutes later the ref comes over to the Greys bench and asks the red carded player to leave the field because he has been sent off (Greys player was physically sitting on the bench).
The ref asks the Greys player to again leave the field or he will abandon the game. The Greys player gives the ref another verbal spray and the ref abandons the game.
The ref was within his rights to do this but everyone was disappointed as only 10min of the game was played. Both teams were standing around talking to each other in utter disbelief. I doubt anyone actually raised a sweat.
The Greys player needs to have a good hard look at himself. Not sure what happens now other than the Greys player is probably set to miss quite a few games. I hope Toonie don't miss next weeks game because one bloke from the other team couldn't keep his trap shut.
I couldn't agree more with you beeper. Our player acted like an absolute crazy person.
I thought todays game started off well and would have been a great match. Could have been lots of goals and an excting match to watch and play in.
I feel I can say that 1 persons behaviour doesn't reflect the whole teams attitude as we all turned up to play football and were denied by selfishness. I hope too that we don't miss next weeks game.
On behalf of the Greystanes team we apologise to the ref and Toongabbie. This year our games have been refereed well and played in great spirits and I don't know why this player reacted so badly to this one decision.
Anyway, it is to late to change anything now. We have to wait and see what happens.

Appreciate the apology uglymug. It would be nice if the bloke who caused the drama thought the same way - maybe he does now?!
I agree with your statement about a possible exciting game. It looked fairly even right from the start. Look forward to the rematch at Bathurst St in round 15.
I refer you to the by laws section 7 (e) (II).
e. In the event of a match being abandoned by the match officials for reasons of violence including but not limited to those mentioned in 7.c., the team or teams reported by the match official(s) shall be suspended from their next competition round. I. Where both teams are held responsible by the MC, the abandoned match shall be voided and not replayed. II. Where one team is held responsible by the MC, the abandoned match shall be awarded to the non-offending team and the non-offending team will be entitled to receive the competition points and the greater of the goals for a forfeited match or the score as at the time of the match being abandoned. The non-offending team will also be allowed to play their next competition round after the abandoned game.
The section seems to relate to violence and not verbal sprays so not sure how to interpret this.
i have heard that because the match was abandoned not due to violence and only 1 person was involved that the match will be replayed.
Not sure if that is what will happen but that is what the president of our club told me.
He also told me that our player is looking at a lengthy spell on the sideline.
I think that this will be determined on Wednesday night.
I did hear that a GDSFA secretary or official was at the match and saw what happened and he reported it to the greystanes president.
Seems a bit harsh on the Toongabbie boys IMO. They did nothing wrong. Although to be fair, it doesn't sound like the Greystanes boys did too much either - perhaps could of shut that player up. I wonder if either side is in a position (physically) to actually play a double header. The disappointing aspect is that we all get on here and whinge when referee's don't get assigned to our games yet when they do you get people abusing them - why would you bother giving up a Saturday to cop that sort of rubbish.

If it was one player why punish both teams. From the sounds of it the game was only just starting. Give that player the maximum penalty and move on. Was there any ill feeling during the 10 minutes that were played, bad challenges or any reason for what happened or why that player sprayed the ref like that.
No ill feeling - although I think the ref did have a chat with the bloke in question for a tackle before the incident. For memory he barged our player in the back. The Toonie player got up, dusted himself off and got on with it without uttering a word.
It all just happened out of the blue!
I note there is some precedence in the senior 10's for forfeiting a match after referee abuse and game abandonment but that did involve a few players. It would be a shame for the other Greystanes blokes if that happens.
