BFL junior coach to face AFL Goldfields region independant tribunal

A JUNIOR coach will front the AFL Goldfields Region Independent Tribunal on Tuesday night after an incident in the Ballarat Football League on Sunday.

The Courier understands the coach has been reported for having used abusive or threatening language towards an umpire as the official was leaving the field at the conclusion of the match.

It is believed the incident followed a spectator being ejected from the ground following an altercation with an umpire.

The BFL on Monday refused to release details of the charge.

Meanwhile, Daylesford coach Joel Adams has been called to the tribunal following an investigation into the Bulldogs' round 15 clash with Skipton.

Adams will tonight answer an unbecoming conduct report after a Central Highlands Football League-appointed investigator recommended that the matter proceed to tribunal.

The Emus sought an investigation into an incident involving onballer Brett Conroy, who club president Graham Layley says was left requiring stitches to his face.

Layley said there was a free kick paid after the incident, but admitted the club felt it was worth another look and would now let the tribunal process run its course.

Daylesford ran out 74-point winners of the encounter.
