Coinless referee banned by FA after rock, paper, scissors blunder

Referee David McNamara has been banned for three weeks after he forgot his coin and asked two captains to play rock, paper, scissors to decide the kick-off.

Updated 1 hour ago


The incident took place ahead of Manchester City's home Women's Super League match with Reading on October 26 and involved their England skipper Steph Houghton and visiting captain Kirsty Pearce, the BBC reported.

A coin toss to decide who kicks off is a requirement under the Laws of the Game but McNamara left his coin in the dressing room and instead allowed the captains to play rock, paper, scissors to determine kick off and playing ends.

"The FA can confirm that referee David McNamara has been suspended for 21 days, starting from Monday 26 November, after accepting a charge of 'not acting in the best interests of the game'," a FA spokesman was quoted as saying.

"This follows an incident in the FA WSL match between Manchester City and Reading on Friday 26th October when he failed to determine which team would kick off the match by the toss of a coin, as required by the Laws of the game."

Meanwhile, FA women's refereeing manager Joanna Stimpson said McNamara's blunder was "a moment of madness".

"The referee forgot his coin and in that moment, in a TV game, he was really pushed for time," she told The Times.

"He should have been more prepared, he should have had a coin. It was disappointing, it's not appropriate, it's very unprofessional."

McNamara, who has the right to appeal against the FA suspension will be able to return to duty from December 17.

Obviously the FA forgot about Law 18.

Understandable
Probably thought there would be plenty of coins on the pitch.

It’s just a minor mistake, the game will be played with or without a coin toss, it will not change the outcome of the game.
