Theo Boucher’s attackers know his approval. Sporty, at least. More than a month after the attack on the youth referee during the match between RC Salouël-Saleux (RC2S) and USOAAS d’Albert at the Under-17 Championship (U17), the Somme football district sanctioned one of the two players , who had hit the young official with a club ban of 24 years. The second player involved took him two years. On the judicial side, the case will be decided on June 23 in the court of Amiens.

A Day of ITT and Skull Injury

On 2 April, the young referee led a football match in the center for the first time. He knocks out one of the players, before the main interested party’s mother loses her nerves and slaps the referee. The player’s brother also intervenes and nods. On the other hand, the expelled player makes a bid by making several strikes. The result was a one-day temporary incapacity for work (ITT) and a significant wound to the scalp. Theo complained. A total of four people were arrested on April 11.

A few weeks ago, the young referee told The Indian Paper that he would return to the field “with a lump in his stomach”, adding that it would “no longer be the same”. This event deeply marked Theo Boucher. “She is a mother who must educate her children, as parents we have a lot of duties. In my head I did not understand. I was really surprised, it comes from the mother of children whom others Must be respected for. She is 44. At 44, you don’t do that and you think before your actions.”
