Women's 'footbrawl' match under investigation

A WOMEN’S football team from Worcester is under investigation by the FA after their latest fixture was called off amidst ugly scenes.

The match between Worcester United and Marston Green was poised at 0-0 in the 80th minute when a brawl involving players from both sides erupted, forcing the referee to abandon the encounter.

Both clubs must now answer charges of failing to control their players in the top-of- the-table West Midlands Regional Women’s League fixture played at the University of Worcester.

The flare-up stemmed from an off-the-ball incident that saw two opposing players react to each other.

As pushing and shoving began about half a dozen players from each side are understood to have got involved, either in the scuffle or as peacemakers.

Worcester United has not yet answered the charge from Worcester FA but internal action has already been taken, with chairman Ryan O’Connor calling the incident “unacceptable” and suspending two players for the club’s next match, away at Lye Town on Sunday.

He has also issued a club statement “making clear the standards he expects” from everyone at the club.

“We as a club have identified our own failings during this incident, he said.

“We could have controlled the situation better by walking away in the face of provocation.”

Mr O’Connor insisted the events, on Sunday, November 11, were “an isolated incident”, saying disciplinary standards had previously been “exceptionally high with no previous incidents of violent conduct”.

He added: “I believe I have dealt with this fairly and proportionately and we are now looking to move on as a club.”

Chris Dale, discipline manager at Worcester FA, said Worcester United has until Tuesday, November 27, to answer the charge.

He said the range of sanctions the sides could face was “fairly open ended” and that any disciplinary hearings would be held promptly – usually within 14 days of receiving the clubs’ responses.

Nobody from Marston Green was available for comment, but Mike Fellows, discipline manager at Birmingham FA, said the club has until Sunday, December 2, to respond to the charge.

Sounds like fun! And also, it would appear that the women's teams have been taking lessons from the men's teams in the art of brawling during a match!

of course i have a right to comment,especially if its on the front page of the local paper.maybe the worcester news could publish the disciplinary records of all teams in the league,and what,if any fines,had to be paid etc etc."they abide by the rules most of the time",maybe they should try to abide by the rules all of the time and not just when it suits them.still,having said that,maybe i should book myself a place on glen dipples coach for the return fixture,sounds like it could be fun :-)

WAG2315 you are correct when you say about the history. I played football 10-15 years ago and every encounter with Worcester resulted in at least 1 altercation.
I'm all for women playing hard and tackling for the ball but off the ball incidents and violent retaliation have no place in the game. It all comes down to attitude and self control and if a club know they have volatile players they should be dealt with in a way that would help prevent such behaviour

it seems to me that most players and supporters only complain about the referee when their team either loses,a result doesnt go their way, or gets a player or two sent off,very rarely do the seem to complain when they win.if both teams are involved then they should both get punished,and not just one team.if the referee was dreadful then thats no need for a brawl to start :-)

It's good that the writers on the pages have little sense of political correctness.

Could someone tell the BBC and Labour Party (the same thing arn't they) that this is how most people think in the Country, with a bit of humour.

Take note Mrs Harperson-Dromey and the other Labour harridans.

Hi makemineadble Worcester city ladies were founded in 2002 so if you had altercations everytime you played them 10-15 yrs ago that would make it once at most. One thinks you may be exaggerating tut tut!
As Worcester united were only founded in 2010 this is a totally different team than the one you may have played 10-15 years ago (we're still not clear whether this team actually existed).
Hey let's blame Manchester city for rooneys violent conduct sending off a few years ago!

Hello Mr Dipple, its funny when people make the local news for getting into a spot of bother is it? I'm sure YOU can understand how upsetting it is when your name ends up in the local paper for some kind of wrong doing, especially if it's a little bit more than just a few girls pushing & shoving one another.

It's me again. Show me a team that abides by all the rules all the time, I guess I'll be waiting until the cows come home for that one. I have never known of this whether it be following the playing rules, code of conduct or even the respect code. These two teams obviously stepped out of line but none of us actually know the ins & outs of what went on that day (with the obvious exception of you girl power) & what lead to the supposed brawl. We should let the fa deal with it after all that's what they're paid for. As for girlpowers statement about having no respect for other players, what respect are you showing to these ladies by one minute standing up for them & the next slagging them off? Do you abide by all the rules? Hmm.
I believe this story has been made out to be a lot more than it actually was, I have heard that the away team stayed for food after the match, which was handed to them by the Worcester team. Now if we're to believe there was a 22 woman brawl on the pitch that day I find it highly unlikely that the away team would stay for food, don't you? But hey I guess this is what sells papers!

Show me a team that abides by all the rules all the time, I guess I'll be waiting until the cows come home for that one. I have never known of this whether it be following the playing rules, code of conduct or even the respect code. These two teams obviously stepped out of line but none of us actually know the ins & outs of what went on that day (with the obvious exception of you girl power) & what lead to the supposed brawl. We should let the fa deal with it after all that's what they're paid for. As for girlpowers statement about having no respect for other players, what respect are you showing to these ladies by one minute standing up for them & the next slagging them off? Do you abide by all the rules? Hmm.

Hello Mr Dipple, its funny when people make the local news for getting into a spot of bother is it? I'm sure YOU can understand how upsetting it is when your name ends up in the local paper for some kind of wrong doing, especially if it's a little bit more than just a few girls pushing & shoving one another.
in my opinion,it sounds to me like footballfan22 is getting a bit personal towards glen dipple,and,again in my opinion,this proves to me that they cant take a joke and also seem to me that the are trying to divert attention from the headline concerned.i wonder if footballfan22 has some interest in either of the teams involved.and i would also like to know what punishment footballfan22 would like the fa to take against both teams should any charge by the fa be proven

Good morning wag, it sounds to me like you have a personal interest in mr Dipple :/ im sure he appreciates you sticking up for him.
I'll have you know I have a great sense of humour, I laugh at all my jokes.
As for the punishment, I cannot fairly say as None of us were actually there and neither of us have access to either teams match report or the referees interpretation of the events that happened that day, all we have to go by is word of mouth & this newspaper article. Sometimes these sources can expand the truth a little if you know what I mean. Would you suggest a punishment on this basis wag? I think it would be a little unjust. Maybe you know more about the days events than me, so if you do please feel free to pass this information on to us all?

Wag you asked me what punishment I would like the fa to take on both teams if the charge be proven & I answered this by stating we do not know the ins & outs of the day so it would be unjust to suggest a punishment for either team! I don't see why you've asked this question again.
As you've said before (words that you use a lot) I may have an interest in these teams & the league as a whole but what's your interest in all this? You don't happen to play in another ladies team do you, possibly in the league below? You seem to know a lot about these teams history.

well it was on the front page of the worcester news.in my opinion i think the punishment should be sort it out amongst yourselves in the return match.for some reason i thought you might have some interest in one or both teams involved.i asked the question again as you seem to avoid answering the question,are you female by any chance.my interest is that im interested in football at all levels,and not just glory hunting premier league teams and their glory hunting supporters

Wag im sure the return fixture will be a lot different, both teams have learnt from this. What a coincidence, we share a common interest. I am also interested in football at all levels. I am actually going to see accrington Stanley today, you don't happen to know what time the earliest train leaves for accrington from new street do you?

i do like a bit of banter on these forums,being honest,im all for "feisty" football matches,so long as they all shake hands when the match is finished.i think abandoning the match was a bit extreme,but as you say,we dont know the full facts.i think the ultimate punishment would be a smoking ban on them at half time,i think you have a twenty minute walk from accrington station to the ground.why are you going by train you may,or may not be interested,but theres a wetherspoons in accrington :-)

Q:What's the difference between BSE and PMT?

A: One is a prion mediated bovine spongiform enceplepathy, the other is mad cow disease.
