There have been three complaints about fines from last month
Long Marston’s fine for no referee’s mark is being investigated.
Wingrave’s fine for late team sheet stands, however it was agreed that if the referee feels there has been a misdemeanour they should report this to the team manager at the time, as it is often difficult to remember incidents from weeks before.
