Clubs reported to JFA after brawl in Ladies’ League match

Kirsten Du Heaume and Monique McLintock were red-carded by referee Steve Proffitt with just a few minutes to go as Wanderers led 4-1.

Wanderers eventually won 5-1 following a hat-trick by Kathryn Porter and singles by Pauline Smart and Gemma Cabot – after Du Heaume had fired the Saints ahead with a shot from 30 yards.

Saints manager Chris Thérin said: ‘I’ve no problems with our red cards but the ref told me that two players from each side would be sent off.

‘I’m extremely disappointed that he did not take action because the two Wanderers players provoked the situation and it’s not just when they play our club – they pollute and ruin other matches as well according to several players and managers.

‘Kirsten and Monique were provoked and I told them they had to accept their red cards and that the ref was justified in sending them off.

‘I was totally surprised by their behaviour as they are quiet girls who normally say sorry before they foul anybody.

Both apologised to the referee afterwards and to the players and myself.’ Wanderers manager Mike Freer would only say that no Wanderers player raised an arm and his team received one caution following the incident.

Referee Proffitt confirmed yesterday that he had made a mistake in not sending off any Wanderers players and that he would be reporting that fact, and both clubs, to the Jersey Football Association’s disciplinary committee.
