An argument between an amateur football player and a referee - ended with the ref in hospital and the player being handed a 12 month community order.
Luke Nicholls, 28, of John Barker Place, Hitchin, admitted an assault which happened during a football match in Luton on 11 December 2016.
During the row, Nicholls punched the referee in the head once. It caused the official to lose consciousness and he required treatment.
Nicholls was sentenced to a 12 month community order, during which he needs to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work. He'll also be subjected to three months of a tagged curfew between 9pm and 6am, and he must pay a £250 victim surcharge to the victim.
