A TOP of the table clash between two Barnsley clubs was abandoned this week after a serious incident.

County Senior League leaders Wombwell Main were 2-1 up at second-placed North Gawber midway through the second half when the referee called the game off.

A disputed throw-in is thought to have led to a fracas which saw a home player sent off, with supporters then understood to have become involved.

A Wombwell Main player is understood to have gone to hospital with an eye socket injury.

Reports have been submitted to the league and it remains to be seen what punishments, if any, will be handed out, and whether the game will have to be replayed.

Joe Campbell and Finley Durkin had netted for Wombwell who remain five points clear at the top.

But there are just two points between second and eighth with most of those teams having games in hand on Main.

Third-placed Dodworth MW also have two games in hand after a 7-0 win at Ecclesfield Red Rose.

Sam Scrivens hit a hat-trick while the other scorers were Aaron Brotherton, Jack Owen, Calan Rollinson and Ryan Barlow.

There was also a big away win for Wombwell Town who beat hosts Houghton Main 6-0.

Edward Agnew and Jordan Cooper bagged braces with Will Harling and Connor Peace also netting.

Town are seventh, seven points behind the leaders with a game in hand.
