Goole AFC Captain Is Sent Off So Jumps Into The Stands And Starts Fighting With Opposition Fans

This Goole AFC captain had a day to forget after getting sent off in a 3-0 defeat before running into the stands to start fighting with oppositions fans – an act which ultimately led to his sacking by the lower league English club.

In crazy scenes, Karl Colley was sent packing and, as he made his way off the pitch, entered the opposition section before throwing several punches at the Coalville Town supporters.

You can see the amazing footage here:

Goole confirmed the player had been released through the following statement on their official website:

“After the deplorable incident at today’s home game against Coalville Town, we can confirm that the player responsible has been released by the club.

“We are a family club and incidents of this nature have no place in football and will not be tolerated at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds.

“The club acted quickly and decisively and released the player with immediate effect and as such the player in question will never play for our football club again.

“We apologise to each and every supporter at the game today and whilst as a club, we can’t legislate for incidents of this nature, we will not tolerate them from anyone.”

He does take considerable abuse but it’s not known yet what caused him to go into the opposition section.
