Cup match called off when teams get fighty

The Irish Cup clash (literally) between Newry City and Larne was abandoned on 82 minutes after a mass brawl involving players, substitutes and coaching staff broke out.

Two Larne players and manager Paul Millar had been sent-off when the trouble flared up with Newry leading 2-1 up. Video footage has not emerged, but the photos in the slideshow above show some nasty kicks to the head, plenty of punches and one outrageous incident of nose-picking.
