Beattie says kick offending Sunday clubs out of football

FOOTBALL legend Kevin Beattie today called for unruly clubs and players to be kicked out of football.

And he says that he would not blame Sunday referees if they went on strike.

Former Ipswich Town and England star Beattie is manager of Sophtlogic who play in the same Flare Recruitment League Division MBA as Brewers Arms and Finningham Flyers who were involved in one of the alleged incidents that saw two games abandoned at Whitton Sports Centre on Sunday.

“I’ve been told what went on and it’s an absolute disgrace,” said Beattie. “It’s ridiculous that it should come to this.

“Sunday football is for amateurs to have a bit of fun and to go out here and enjoy themselves.

“Referees love the game as well or they would stay in bed on Sunday mornings, and at the end of the day they are only doing their job.

“Without them there would be no football, and clubs and players should be kicked out of football if the allegations are proven.
