Appalled Phil Bater described the scenes that saw Larkhall Athletic's game at Bridgwater Town abandoned and his son left with multiple injuries as "unpalatable".
The Evo-Stik League Southern game at Fairfax Park was abandoned with five minutes to play and the Larks 4-0 ahead after a mass brawl erupted, which left Geraint Bater with multiple injuries.
The Plain Ham club had looked well set to end a nine-game winless run, until Geraint was allegedly elbowed by a Bridgwater player, sparking a melee on the pitch.
He was left on the floor with what turned out to be fractures to facial bones, as members of both teams joined the scrap.
Phil explained: "It was a mad one, really. The game was just a normal game, we played excellently – we've been working really hard since we got thumped the other week and did absolutely everything right.
"We're 4-0 up five minutes to go and their lad decides to elbow Geraint in the penalty area.
"The ball was nowhere near him; a straight red from the referee who was looking straight at him.
"There was another lad as well, I think, that got sent off for headbutting somebody or something like that."
