WEYMOUTH’S abandoned derby with Yeovil Town is under investigation by league officials, the Terras have confirmed.

With Weymouth 1-0 up thanks to Dan Roberts’ 32nd-minute strike, the match was halted in the 77th minute owing to a medical emergency in the crowd.

An air ambulance was called for, landing on the pitch to help treat the individual concerned. Play was later abandoned after a 42-minute stoppage in play.

National League officials and The FA are carrying out the investigation, with the fixture expected to be replayed in line with rules surrounding such scenarios.
