A tribunal has handed down its verdict on a Swan Reach player for his involvement in the incident that resulted in the match between Swan Reach and Buchan being called off before half time on 28th July 2018.
Gary Kramme has been slapped with a five match ban (with an additional two matches suspended) for 2019. He was initially reported for striking by the field umpires, with another charge of of unbecoming conduct being added by the officer investigating the incident.
The match gained larger coverage when the father of the umpire who called the game off rang into Neil Mitchell’s radio program on 3AW the following week to voice his concerns over his son’s welfare.
The original tribunal date was also pushed back as the charged player was unable to attend due to being on an interstate holiday.
