The circumstances surrounding Wolves having to play their second straight home First Division fixture on neutral turf remained unclear yesterday.

The Bermuda Football Association advised members of the media yesterday morning that Wolves’s league fixture with high-flying Paget Lions tomorrow has been switched from their home venue at Devonshire Recreation Club to Lord’s in St David’s.

Wolves’s league match with St David’s on February 11 was also moved from Devonshire Rec to Lords.

Shannon Burgess, the BFA league and cup competitions chairman, and Nadine Henry, the Devonshire Recreation Club president, were both unavailable for comment yesterday.

Wolves last played at Devonshire Rec on January 21 in a league match against Devonshire Colts that was abandoned in the 75th minute after a fight broke out between players from both teams.

Visiting side Colts were leading 3-0 at the time after a brace from Teneko Eve and a Cameron Coffey goal.

“The BFA is reviewing the reports from the referees and match commissioner and other relevant persons before taking any additional actions against any offending players,” the BFA told The Royal Gazette in a statement last month.

It remains unclear whether the game will be replayed or if any disciplinary action has been imposed on any of the players involved in the mêlée.
