Brawl at First Division match between Ireland Rangers and St David’s

Fights involving several opposing team players caused Sunday’s football season finale between First Division rivals Ireland Rangers and St David’s to be abandoned by the referee.

A full-scale brawl was reported to have erupted during the second half, after a Rangers player was fouled and took umbrage over the infraction by attacking his St David’s counterpart.

The retaliation precipitated members of both teams engaging in violent acts, with there purportedly having been a chair used as a weapon and a player said to have suffered potentially serious injuries.

It is believed that the incident was reported to the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) and that a file may or may not have been prepared. Meanwhile, each club is reported to have initiated their own examinations of the affair, while the Bermuda Football Association (BFA) is also understood to be investigating, with there being a high likelihood of disciplinary action, involving suspensions, being imposed by all three entities.

TNN understands that both clubs have commenced their own investigations into the brawl.
