The FA Sunday Cup game between Witton Park & Black Bull was Abandoned after a melee which seemed to have been started (allegedly) by Black Bull after Witton had been 3-0 up and Black Bull didn't want to play the last 20 minutes - i wasn't there so i cant comment apart from what i've seen on Twitter

Wonder what the FA will do now

From the Evening Chronicle - (http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/nor ... t-12462094)

Quote:
An amateur football match was brought to a halt after a mass brawl erupted on the pitch. Footage has emerged showing the aftermath of Witton Park Rose and Crown’s All England Cup game on Sunday.

The County Durham-based team were playing Liverpool’s Black Bull when both sides became involved in a disturbance. In the grainy footage, men can be seen grappling with each other while dozens watch on. Then a man appears to aim a flying kick at another, before the fracas is broken up.

According to Witton Park Rose and Crown’s Twitter account, they were 3-0 up against the Black Bull when the fighting broke out. The video of the fight has been viewed more than 480,000 on Facebook after it was shared by the Football Away Days account.

Stan Thexon is the chairman of Witton Park Rose and Crown. He said: “The ball went into the dugout then there was a confrontation between one of ours and one of theirs then everyone ran on. The trouble lasted around three minutes then it settled down.”

Mr Thexon, 67, said that the referee got the players together after the trouble had finished but was unable to restart the game. He added: “It’s the last thing we wanted to see. We have been playing brilliantly this year and have beaten some top teams.”

Durham Constabulary say no crime has been reported to them.
