A National League North match between Scarborough Athletic and local rivals Darlington had to be suspended until play could resume due to discriminatory language towards a female official. 5th placed Scarborough Athletic welcomed Darlington to the Flamingo Land Stadium in a full-capacity ground with over 3200 spectators. The match got suspended very late in the game. (Credit: This is the Coast) Scarborough beat Darlington 3-2 away on boxing day but 3rd placed Darlington got their revenge in the reverse fixture as they were leading 3-0 before the match had to be suspended. There were reports of discriminatory language used towards a female official from the stands and also reports of a cup being thrown at a player. We would like to emphasise that discriminatory language of any nature will not be tolerated. Please respect the match officials, players and fellow fans.— Scarborough Athletic FC (@safc) January 2, 2023 Darlington FC also published an appeal on their website to help identify those responsible for the first-half incident. UPDATE: Scarborough Athletic 2-5 Darlington FC.
