LATICS BLAST REFEREE DRYSDALE.
Oldham Athletic have made an official complaint to the Football League after they were forced to wear Northampton Town’s socks last Saturday.
Club officials were surprised when Town opted to wear white socks as opposed to the burgundy* version listed with the Football League.
Referee Darren Drysdale refused to back Athletic, who had to play wearing the hosts normal home socks with their blue kit.**
The move left chief executive Alan Hardy fuming.
I am not making this up by the way
as this link should prove, if it hasn't been moved.
One can only start to imagine how nice calm Mr Hardy would react if a dodgy penalty was awarded against his side. He'd be really 'Raging!'I would imagine.
* Editor's note: We play in claret, not bloody burgundy.
** Fashion editor's note: Blue and claret did rather clash - it wasn't a good look.
