Budleigh Salterton’s South West Peninsula League, Eastern Division game was abandoned after 38 minutes after a melee broke out.
At the time of the incident that caused the match official to abandon the contest Budleigh were winning 3-0.
Shortly after the match the Peninsula league website carried the following statement:
“The league officers are aware that the East Division fixture, Budleigh Salterton v Axminster Town, was abandoned today by the match referee.
The matter will be placed into the hands of Devon County FA regarding any and all misconduct charges. The result of, or any decision as to replay, or not, the match will not be considered by the board until such time that misconduct proceedings have been completed. The game is listed as 31st May on the league website purely as a holding date.”
Make sure of your copy of the Budleigh Journal – out next on Thursday, January 24 – to read a match report.
