On the evening of Sunday 22nd September, Telford Tigers 2 played against Deeside Dragons in Deeside. During the game, a Telford player was verbally threatened by the penalty box official before a further Telford player was then physically assaulted by the same official. This is the second time in successive seasons that Telford players have been attacked in the penalty box at Deeside – last season a U18 player was similarly assaulted.
This behaviour is totally unacceptable in any sport and overshadowed a very competitive game between two great teams.
Telford Tigers informed North Wales Police of the events that took place and are fully cooperating with the police investigation into the matter.
No further statements will be made until this investigation is completed.
