Whistleblower ban

WHEN a football match ends in a riot and the police are called Football CQ brings out the big guns.

A disciplinary committee was formed after referees Charley and Clare Bond claimed to have been abused by Central players in a men's second division match on June 30 against Wolves at Sun Valley Oval.

After weeks of deliberation the committee passed sentence last week. Those involved had seven days to appeal. No one did.

The committee decided to:

Prohibit Central FC hosting any senior matches until after midnight, August 5 (including Premier League Clinton v Central local derby on 7pm August 4);

Issue the club with a suspended $1000 fine (expires December 31, 2013);

Suspend club official from all CQ matches until after midnight August 5.

For on-field behaviour:

Three players were suspended for a total of six weeks;

The club has been issued with a team misconduct breach notice.

Although Central lodged a counter complaint against Clare Bond for her actions on the night, the disciplinary committee took no action against her. Charley Bond was, however, punished by Football CQ for speaking to The Observer.

"The referee who gave you the interview has been stood down for four weeks for breaching the code of conduct," Football CQ said.

"You cannot comment on matters going to a disciplinary hearing, that rule applies to all participants."

Central FC representatives declined to comment.

 

What happened?

20 minutes in - Charley Bond leaves the field in tears, her mum Clare takes over.

20 minutes to the end of the game - Clare red cards three Central players.

At the end of the game - Charley and her mum lock themselves in the referee room, scared for their safety

At 9pm - police are called to escort the referees.
