Hooligan Walks on to Pitch and Punches Leyton Orient Goalkeeper During Match [VIDEO]
A teenage hooligan walked on to the pitch and swung punches at Leyton Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones today in the match against Swindon.
The 16-year-old hooligan was removed from the pitch by stewards, and was arrested by police.
Orient manager Russell Slade said:
“That was the worst scene I’ve seen as a manager.
“[The match] was clouded by a fan running onto the pitch and throwing three punches at my goalkeeper.
“It is unbelievable. He’s okay, but that doesn’t make it right. It’s outrageous.
“He [the supporter] needs a ban for life. He should never go to another football match.”
Orient won the match 3-1 to climb back to the top of the League One table.
