Match ends up in a mass brawl

A WOMEN'S Edinburgh derby with players as young as 15 had to be called off after a mass brawl broke out on the pitch just minutes before the final whistle.

The punch-up took place in the dying minutes of a Hearts and Hibs women's reserve team clash featuring several youth players at Foresters Park in Tranent.

The incident, which happened last Sunday, occurred at about the game's 85th minute following an altercation between two rival players. The scuffle prompted parents and coaches from both sides to rush over the touchline before trading blows on the pitch.
