I reffed a U12G indoor game yesterday where an attacker stood directly in front of the keeper.
When the keeper moved to the left or right, the attacker followed,remaining in front. Another attacker
shot and scored. I disallowed the goal for impeding the keeper. The impeder was not within
playing distance of the ball. Well, the British coach claimed his player
"made no contact", to which I replied "no contact need be made!" This was the first time I had seen
this happen in 12 years of reffing... An hour later, I was walking off a field and heard a player
urging teamate to impede the keeper "Hey Billy, stand in front of the keeper".
Am I missing something?
