I WRITE with regard to your story on the Chatteris Town a match against Coldham.

Why is there a big spread when Chatteris Town FC and their teams are shown in a bad light, but no stories on their achievements this season?

The A Team are top of their league, unbeaten so far and all three teams in the Cambs league have a good disciplinary record this season so far, in fact just five red cards between Chatteris Town's five teams.

Our reserves are top and the 1st team are second in their respective leagues.

The referee in question was in the middle of one of our games two weeks earlier and there were no problems.

It's always the same, the press highlight the bad and ignore the good.

If the referee thought things were getting out of hand he should first call the captains together, then the managers and as a last resort send off any offending players.

I was at the West Street ground and tried to speak to the referee, but he was gone in seconds and not willing to speak to anybody.

We appreciate that there is a shortage of referees, but as for Mr Hills remarks, how can he comment before he had the reports from either the referee or the clubs in

question. He should have waited for these before he made a judgement.
