Photos submitted to TMSG by a reader a player with a laceration across the back of his neck, with what appeared to be a possible assault with a weapon.

Another photo showed a fan being restrained as he was headed in the direction of Danial Razali, the Simei United player who was allegedly assaulted.

Witnesses TMSG spoke to following the match said that Danial was assaulted as the team was heading back to the dressing room following the end of the first half. 

29-year-old Danial is a former Young Lion, who was part of the squad in 2015.

Simei United chairman Faisal Rashid confirmed that a police report will be filed within 48 hours of the incident, but did not given any other information about what happened at the venue.

He also declined any comment about the matter.

The match ended 1-0 in Simei’s favour, courtesy of a 67th minute penalty.

A TMSG reader also submitted a video of the off-field scuffle.

INCIDENCES OF POOR SPORTSMANSHIP AND BEHAVIOUR

There have been multiple instances of either poor sportsmanship, traces of fan hooliganism or off-field issues which have descended into chaos across organised football over the last few months, which surely indicate a disturbing trend.

First, the 24 July incident involving Lion City Sailors and Tampines Rovers in which both clubs were fined.


Then in August, a Singapore Football League match between Sporting Westlake and Mattar Sailors in August also saw the disciplinary committee being convened.

Then it was the turn of a U17 Centre of Excellence league match at Clementi Stadium on 13 September.

More recently, the police had to be called in to quell the tempest after a league match between Tampines Rovers and Tanjong Pagar United almost turned ugly with Jaguars manager Noh Alam Shah having to be restrained.
