Who'd be a ref? Well, plenty of people, actually

League Two outfit, Macclesfield Town, have fined every player, their manager, assistant manager and all fans who attended the fixture against Wycombe Wanderers on February 26, after an injury-time brawl which resulted in much laughter.

Town chairman Mike Rance said:

"We have concluded the actions of Macclesfield Town players on the pitch could not be condoned, and the supporters were no better. We are a struggling club, finding things difficult financially, and this will raise some much-needed cash."

Both clubs have requested a personal hearing for their misconduct charges.

Rance went on:

"I have decided to fine fans £300 each. That'll teach 'em."

One man who was at the game, Town fan Mike Ramshacklesworth, said:

"I think it's a bit of a bloody cheek. I can't afford a fine. I'm on the dole. Mind you, there is that bit of window cleaning that I do on the side..."

Others were in agreement. Colin Eckerslike, a Macclesfield supporter through-and-through, told us:

"If they fine me, I'll go and watch Stockport!"

The match, which Wycombe won 1-0, was referee James Adcock's debut in a Football League contest. He has since become a boxing referee.
