Player banned for kicking Refs door

St Johnstone defender Richard Foster has been banned for two matches for kicking a referee’s door.

The Scottish Football Association found the 32-year-old guilty of “excessive misconduct” after the 3-2 defeat at Dundee last month.

Sofien Moussa scored the winner from the penalty spot at Dens Park after referee Alan Muir ruled that Foster had fouled AJ Leitch-Smith.

Foster’s ban means that he will miss the Scottish Premiership home game against Rangers on October 13 and the trip to Hearts eight days later.

The former Aberdeen and Gers full-back also served a two-match ban and was fined by the club last season for scuffling with teammate Danny Swanson during the 0-0 draw at Hamilton Academical in April.

Society Meeting

Dear Colleagues,

Just a reminder that the Society’s first meeting of Season 2017-2018 will take place this Monday 21st of August at the Ford Club, Treboeth, Swansea to commence at 7.30pm.

Prior to the Society’s meeting, the Swansea Senior League were to hold a referees get-together at 6.30pm but this has now been cancelled due to the General League Secretary and the Leagues Referee Officer both not being able to attend. This will be rearranged for a later date. Referees wishing to register with the Swansea Senior League will be able to do so; forms will be available on the night.

At the Society meeting, we will be looking at the new Law changes (presented by Mr D.T. Rees, Referees Officer W.W.F.A.) and changes to disciplinary administration (presented by Mr Roger Upward, Assistant Secretary W.W.F.A.)

On behalf of our Chairman, Mr Alan Gray and myself we look forward to your attendance.



Ronaldo Banned for 5 Games for Pushing Ref

Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned by Spanish authorities for five games after pushing the referee in the back, after he was shown a second yellow for diving in last night’s El Clasico.

He has received a one game ban for his second yellow and red card and a four game suspension for pushing the referee, he has also been fined €3,805 for his actions.

Although the suspension might be reduced to a three game ban as the second yellow that the Portuguese winger received looked to be harsh as replays show that there was contact between him and Samuel Umtiti, even if that contact was minimal.

If the ban is not reduced, he will miss the opening four league fixtures of the Real’s season against Deportivo, Valencia, Levante and Real Betis but he will be available to play in the Champions League
