That`s because, in front of a decent crowd of 152, United were rampant and 8-0 up at half-time on Saturday but Abingdon Town refused to play the second half!

 

Three Goals from Nathan Kimber, braces from Jack Gaul and Ben Curtis and one from Jack White gave United their 8-0 when Town did not return for the second half.

 

United site second in the table, while their local rivals are rock bottom with just 6 points to date from 15 games played.

 

The Hellenic League announced it would review the match report and decide if any action needs to be taken against Abingdon Town as a result of the game.
