Birkirkara file protest

Birkirkara have filed a protest over the result of the BOV Premier League match against Tarxien Rainbows, claiming that referee Adrian Azzopardi committed a technical error.

The Stripes claim that on the 66th minute, the referee ordeed a throw-in in favour of Tarxien and as the player was giving the throw-in, a Birkirkara player was removing another ball off the field of play therefore leaving a Tarxien striker unmarked. This led to Tarxien’s third goal less than thirty seconds later.

Rodrigo Andreis Galvao scored the goal which handed Tarxien the three points.
