Referee Of The Week

Who would be a football referee?

They are subject to enough abuse from spectators and players through the natural course of a match without unnecessarily causing the wrath of all.

Spare a thought then for Simeon Lucas, the named referee for the FA Trophy clash between Curzon Ashton and Chester City. Fifteen minutes into the first half there was a tannoy announcement requesting that the owner of a vehicle move their car, a fairly common occurrence, especially at grounds where street parking is at a premium.

The referee stopped play, dashed to the touchline, had an earnest conversation with a steward and then left the pitch. The offending car was his and play was held up as the red-faced official moved it, much to the chagrin and then amusement of the 329 hardy souls who had braved the high winds and snow to watch the match.

He should have been given a yellow ticket!
