ALTERCATION: The Fryer Playing Field

A MAN was taken to hospital after allegedly being headbutted in the face at a youth football match.

Police were called to Fryer Field recreational ground in Ferndown following an altercation between members of the two rival coaching teams on Sunday afternoon.

Just minutes before the end of match between Poole Town Youth FC under 13s and Grange Athletic FC under 13s, a row, believed to have been sparked by a controversial penalty decision, broke out between three men.

Witnesses said a member of the coaching team from Grange Athletic was headbutted by his counterpart from Poole Town Youth FC.

Dorset Police said one man was taken to hospital with “minor head injuries” following the alleged assault.

“Police attended an altercation between three men at the football match at Bond Avenue in West Moors. One of the men received minor head injuries and had to go to hospital,” a police spokesman said.

She added: “No arrests have been made. All three men are helping officers with their enquiries.”

Following the dispute the referee bought the game to a close, which ended in a one-all draw.

Alan Paull, chairman of Bournemouth Youth Football League (BYFL), said the incident will be investigated by Hampshire Football Association and Dorset Football Association.

“It's something that no one wants to happen but unfortun-ately in this day and age it does happen,” he said.

“It’s up to the county associations to come up with a solution.

“They will carry out an investigation together and will make a decision as to whether any disciplinary action needs to be taken.

“It could take quite a long time,” he added.

John Fancy, disciplinary co-ordinator at Dorset Football Association, said an investigation has been launched.

“We have received various reports on the incident. We will be looking through these and preferring charges against the individuals involved when and if necessary,” he said.

“Hopefully, the people involved will realise it won’t be tolerated,” he added.

Simon Robinson, secretary of Poole Town Youth Football Club, said the club was still ascertaining the facts about what had happened.

“This is something we don’t want to see in league football,” he said.

Mr Robinson said no action has been taken by the club against any of its coaching staff at this stage.

“We will act in accordance with the guidance from the FA,” he said.

A representative from Grange Athletic FC said the assistant coach involved in the incident has made a full recovery.

He added: “We are all supposed to follow the FA respect code especially in front of children.

“These sorts of things should not happen at a children’s match.”

Nothing to do with a biased ref.
The managers of Poole Town Youth are well known to be very bad losers with a philosphy of 'win at at all cost' to satisfy their own ego's.
Hampshire & Dorset FA should take very strong action against the individuals concerned and 'ban' them from anything to do with youth football now or in the future !!
If they dont, rest assured it wont be the last time they 'kick off' and be a disgrace.
Feel sorry for all the young players had to watch their adult 'mentors' behave in that way, set's such a very bad example which cannot be condoned by anyone.

I am somewhat surprised that there is no action being taken by the clubs as surely committing an act of violence on the sideline of YOUTH football surely warrants instant dismissal!! Another worrying point, if no charges are brought then these people can continue to work with children as it would not show on their CRB check. If I was a parent belonging to any of those teams my son would never play again for them! If it was bad reffing, as it happens during most games, then surely refusing to continue to play the rest of the match and taking it up with the FA with a match report would have been more appropriate - not violence! What an awful thing for young boys and/or siblings spectating to witness - disgusting!

A very sad day for Youth football. Poole Town Youth have long been known for their intimidation and bully boy tactics. They are a ticking time bomb that has finally exploded. The Club hierarchy should of suspended them immediately pending an investigation but they will never admit they are in the wrong; blaming the ref is no excuse for violence! How can any parent be happy for their kid to continue to play for this team? Witnessing that is disgraceful and wrong. These individuals should be thrown out of the game for good! Even sadder is that this team could be crowned 'Dorset County Cup' champions tomorrow. Wouldn't that make a mockery of youth football?

There are no problems in cricket whatsoever so it much be the nature of the game of football itself that causes parents and coaches to get completely over excited.

I also used to play a lot of rugby - no need for fighting on the touchline as you could have all the scraps you wanted on the pitch!

Maybe because rugby is more physical on the field it has a calming effect. But to hear a football Mum and Dad shout "Have his legs" makes you wonder "Why"?

There's far much aggression on the pitch for any child to witness. Whoever was involved should be banned from coaching and watching any further matches. It would be a lesson to be learned for any football team acting like animals.

Interesting to note that whoever wrote the match report on the Poole Town Youth website stated that the penalty decision was "dubious". Clearly they have not been paying any attention to the FA's "respect" campaign and everyone at a club from the top down should not public question a referees decision. If I called an LBW decision "dubious" in a match report, the club would find itself on a charge from the Hampshire Cricket League.

It's pretty easy to have a go at the referee, especially if he comes from the Grange team, but that's not completely the Granges fault. I was a Hampshire FA Referee, qualified at 14 and spent 4 years refereeing youth football until I was 18.
*
It is obvious that the one issue that was common then is still common today. Not enough referees or linesman are available to cover all games. In the four years I was in the centre, the only times we had proper coverage was at summer tournaments.
*
So if you've got a complaint about the Grange using their own ref, get off your backside and become a qualified ref. It's good exercise, a lot of fun, will never make you rich and you'll have everyone else complaining about you. But you will be making a good contribution to a lot of good kids in the area who just want to play and enjoy their football without this nonsense.
*
I reffed the Grange and found them no more prone to trouble than any other team. Yes there was an expectation that they would win and I think that affected the kids enjoyment of a game, especially when they lost. Which directly links to the other issue.
*
In youth football 95% of all kids will never play football professionally and maybe on 20% will carry on to play football on a regular basis. So, just let them play and enjoy it. There's more character to be built in playing in a losing side that grows together and improves together to win more games as they go, rather than winning everything all the time.
*
Don't let your vicarious dreams of being a professional player destroy their desire to keep playing, even if they never will be a first team pick for Manchester United or even better, the Cherries.

Oh I get it now, so what you are saying is that the referee was entirely responsible for not only an assistant manager being head butted and ending up in hospital but also he was the one to blame for two players get broken bones in the same match. Must have been some game !!
There are potential conflicts of interest with referee's every weekend in youth football as most of the time game's are officiated by a 'home team' dad.
Just because it happened to be an older brother of one of the players on the pitch, there is very really no difference as it could have been the players father.
At the end of the day, the incident happened because certain people have a lack of self control in situations that they do not like a bit like a child 'throwing it's toys out of the pram' when it cannot get it's own way.

Punishments will be handed out to the guilty parties for their actions in due course by the FA & possibly the CPS but this will not include the referee as he was just trying to control a football match where idiotic & egotistical 'mentors', who should know better, lost all control.

It's up to John Fancy to ensure he gets the truth about what happened at the game and ensure the punishment fits the crime, for both teams if necessary. It's unfortunate that the pleasure has gone from youth football, for players and some parents who are NOT 'living their own dreams' through their own and other peoples children. While you have these 'win at all cost' teams, the likes of who wait in the car parks of local league clubs when they release players from youth contracts to 'sign the best' before anyone else does, then the problems will come to a head and escalate in this manner.

Just because it happened to be an older brother of one of the players on the pitch, there is very really no difference as it could have been the players father.
At the end of the day, the incident happened because certain people have a lack of self control in situations that they do not like a bit like a child 'throwing it's toys out of the pram' when it cannot get it's own way.

Punishments will be handed out to the guilty parties for their actions in due course by the FA & possibly the CPS but this will not include the referee as he was just trying to control a football match where idiotic & egotistical 'mentors', who should know better, lost all control.

It’s irrelevant whether the ref is the son/brother/mum/dad whatever. The referee has nothing to do with the incident that took place. Yes the ref may or may not of made a bad decision. But that does not mean someone can assault someone else.
Blimey if people kicked off at every bad decision in football then riots would take place weekly.

As I stated before anyone involved in the incident should have a permanent ban from youth football. If nothing is done the FA is basically saying ok coaches/managers/kid
s have a fight, head butt your opposition as you will get away with it.

Personally I think the incident will be swept under the carpet and forgotten.

I am not condoneing what happened at all, The people concerned need to take responsibility for their actions and take whatever punishment is handed to them, but Grange do have a reputation for having a biased unfair ref. Fergie time has come to BYFL

I know that you are not condoning what happened and I totally understand that the ref might of been cheating/biased (sounds like he was).
But the coaches really should be able to control themselves from beating each other.
I feel sorry for the kids in the 2 teams involved as I expect its going to affect them in the long run (no manager/coach = no team)

I'm confident that both Hampshire FA & Dorset FA will NOT 'sweep this under the carpet' and will take very seriously the possible consequences of doing nothing.
A very clear message needs to be sent out by football's governing body that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated at any level and especially not in youth football where the participants are children and young adults.

I would also think that Hampshire FA & Dorset FA will be taking advice from the FA in London as this story also got into a very large & well known national newspaper !!
