32' - Unbelievable scenes at St. James' Park. Referee Keith Stroud disallows Matt Ritchie's converted penalty and there won't be a retake.— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) April 5, 2017 Evidently the referee chalked off a penalty and gave a free kick. Precedent? Mis-application of the rules? Some new rule change regarding encroachment? If/when there's video, I'll follow up. Thx, Jay!
