First l forgot to mention in my match report the 1 minutes silence for Adrian Titcombe was immecutaley observed and all at the club will miss Adrian.
There was towards the end of the game a few comments in the main stand about some strong Language used with Children in attendance.
Im certainly no Shrinking Violet standing on half way trying to encourage our guys but lm going to be more aware in the future of what to say etc.
As for the referee Tom Ellsmore this was tough game to Ref Lots of fouls from Taunton and Sledging etc.
The Ref got it wrong by not playing advantage near the end when Anthony O' Connor was through and he obviously thought the Taunton guy being sent off took priority.
Ive done it in the past calling the ref it ryhmes with banker etc and sometimes you see refs smile back and its banter.
But what l saw near near the tunnel at the end went way too far.
A group of around 10 Taunton"fans" giving severe verbal abuse to the ref is not on.
Thats not acceptable.All Refs are human and make errors and as fans we must accept that.
Without Refs giving up their time on a Saturday Afternoon we have no match to watch.
I for one will try to be more respectful in the future and we all must remember that its a game yes to win but to be respectful of others around us and yes the match officials.
