Eynesbury Rovers manager Mark Ducket has been charged by the Hunts FA after abusing a referee on social media.
Ducket, who was hit with a seven-match stadium ban last season following an incident involving a female official, now finds himself in hot water again.
He described the referee of his side’s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Holbeach in the United Counties League Premier Division on Tuesday night as a ‘bald t**t’ in a post on Twitter.
Hunts FA county secretary Dean Watson told the Hunts Post this morning (Friday): “After reviewing the information Mark Ducket has been charged with E3(c) Improper Conduct against a March Official – (including abusive language/behaviour).
“Until the case has been heard and there is an outcome, Hunts FA will not comment any further on the case.”
