Calcutta Football League: Mohun Bagan pull out of CFL after controversial decisions in the
clash against Tollygunge Agragami
Today's Calcutta Football league fixture between Mohun Bagan and Tollygunge Agragami had to be called off after supporters invaded the field of play.

The incident took place in the injury time when Arharuddin Mallick's goal was disallowed after being ruled offside by the linesman. Replays were inconclusive and the decision had a huge impact on the league as Mohun Bagan would fall further behind East Bengal after being held by Peerless to a goalless draw in their previous fixture. Before the controversial moment, the match was well poised with a 1-1 scoreline after Alfred Jaryan 87th minute strike cancelled out Prabir's opener.

The officials tried to control the crowd but it was not to be as the match commissioner had to call-off the match.

It is learnt that Mohun Bagan officials have decided to pull out of the ongoing Calcutta Football League(CFL) as a mark of protest against the poor standard of refereeing on display.
