Woods suspended for six weeks

Albany Advertiser

Albany midfielder Nathan Woods has been suspended for six weeks for striking by the Great Southern Football League tribunal.

Woods was red carded and reported in the third term of the Sharks’ loss to Royals last weekend for a late elbow to Royals’ Arana O’Byrne.

The tribunal handed down the hefty six-week penalty on Wednesday night and also placed Woods on a 12-month good behaviour bond.

Woods has now been suspended for a total of 14 weeks in his time in the GSFL.

He was suspended in 2010 as a colts player for the Sharks which led to him losing his players permit before it was reinstated in 2012.
