Crowd trouble mars Kolkata derby Under-18 I-League

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The ugly skirmish between and East Bengal supporters once again put city's football to shame when a crowd trouble took the centre stage in an U-18 Youth League clash here today.

As soon as the match ended in a 1-1 draw, two flag-waving East Bengal supporters invaded the pitch that led to an uproar in the home camp as stones and verbal abuses were hurled in plenty with about 500-odd supporters in attendance.



Being an age group match, the security was not adequate as the mounted police and the police struggled to control the incident.

"The onus lies with the home team (Mohun Bagan) to get proper security measure in place. It's their home match and they are responsible for the security arrangement," match commissioner Bikash Mukherjee told reporters.

Describing this as a poor display of the sport, Mohun Bagan's I-League-winning coach Sanjoy Sen, who was at the ground, told PTI: "It was everything but football."

"I never expected this from the U-18 boys. They should have been more skillful with ball passing and receiving but it was an atrocious display."

Refusing to comment on the crowd trouble, he said: "These incidents in a derby is pretty common these days."

Leading with a 22nd minute strike from Lalchawnhima, East Bengal doubled the lead in the 38th minute but referee disallowed the goal, leading to the furore among the players who protested the decision.

According to the referee, the striker had fired in the ball before he blew the whistle.

brought the game on an even keel with a goal from Deepak Tangri in the 89th minute and crowd trouble soon took the centre stage and spilled over outside the stadium.

The draw enabled remain at the top of the 'Zone' table with seven points from three matches.

next face United SC on December 6 at the same venue.
