Staff member PUNCHES a teenage linesman to the floor in a sudden mid-game attack

35

Footage of a young linesman being punched in the face by a staff member from a rival football team in North Wales has emerged.

What Happened?

The attacker must have been boiling after his team let in what goals in a hugely one-sided affair – the match at Amlwch Town saw Clwb Pêl-Droed Penrhyndeudraeth put eight past the hosts North Wales Coast Football Association.

While one of the visiting players serving voluntarily as the linesman for the league clash, a figure from the Amlwch staff appeared to strike the player after just 15 minutes of action. 

Video footage shows the stunning moment, with two crossing paths on the touchline after the first whistle was blown.

Why He Was Attacked

It is not clear whether anything is said between the two, before the Amlwch figure steps up and aims a blow at the linesman’s chin, sending him to the ground. 

The rest of the Penrhyn squad then come running over to the scene, but Pellegrino prevents any conflict by ushering them away, though the team remain in close proximity. 

One of Pellegrino’s assistants appears to then talk to the figure that aimed the punch in a bid to calm him down, while other players from the home bench then walk over.

It’s Now a Police Case

The shocking attack has been reported to North Wales Police, as reported by both the NWCFA and Penrhyn. 

The club’s statement read: ‘A fantastic result and performance from the lads today.

‘Unfortunately, the game was marred by an incident which occurred approximately 15 minutes into the game when a Penrhyn player, acting as a voluntary linesman, was assaulted. 

‘The Club will not be making any further comments but will support the player as the matter has been reported to the police.’
