PUBLISHED: 16:08 25 January 2012
Bridgham United’s last-16 Ben Smith Cup tie with Yaxham was abandoned by the referee after 58 minutes when the Yaxham manager refused to leave the touchline after he had been sent way from the playing area.
Yaxham, who had been reduced to ten men early in the second half, led the game 1-0 after a first half keeper error. Bridgham had gone closest with a Michael Watts header while keeper Matt Wabe produced two superb saves to keep a side missing six regulars in the game.
