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."
