Interesting night at Chelmsford, 2-0 down to Braintree in an Essex Senior Cup match, the ref abandoned the game after a fight involving all 22 players plus subs and management. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/boxing.gif" alt="" />

Any game involving George Borg has the potential to turn nasty but when Graig Edwards is the opposing manager the clock was ticking. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/boxing.gif" alt="" />

I read about that last night on the Braintree board. One of their players went to hospital with a broken nose apparently.

I'm afraid Borg deserves a sine die ban from all football. Completely psychotic. Deserves everyting the FA throw at him.

Football derby ends in violence

An amateur football derby game erupted into violence 15 minutes into the second half on Monday, forcing the referee to abandon the game.
Now the two clubs involved will face a disciplinary hearing with the national Football Association.

The trouble at the Essex Senior Cup fixture between Chelmsford City and Braintree Town is said to have started in the team coaches' dug out.

Many of the players then brawled on the pitch at Chelmsford's Melbourne Park.

Support for referee

Phil Sammons, chief executive of the Essex County FA, said the referee has made a report about the incident.

"The disciplinary issues will be dealt with at the national Football Association level because they are senior clubs," he said.

"The players face suspension and fines and the clubs, if charged, face monetary penalties.

"It was two or three minutes of players being out of control. There was wrestling and punches being thrown," he added.

"The Essex FA support the referee's decision to abandon the game and we will have to wait and see what happens.

"The FA will now handle the matter as these clubs report directly to them and not the County FA."

Taking into account the pair of managers involved the clubs should get two punishments

1. both clubs lose ten points

2. neither manager can be quoted in the local press for five years
