Scene of the incident

A linesman brutally knocked out a goalkeeper when a huge brawl erupted during a match. The 34-year-old, named as Lennert Bohmer, was arrested after he charged on to the pitch and floored the shot-stopper with a punch from behind.

He was left unconscious on the ground as his team-mates rushed to his side and desperately called for help. Paramedics treated the goalkeeper at the scene before he was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

Chaos erupted after a player was shoved to ground during the match between Hoofddorp club VV UNO and S.V. Geel-Wit in Holland.

Players got stamped on, punches were thrown and one player floored an opponent with a flying kick.

The linesman, who previously played for Geel-Wit, raced onto the pitch with his flag in his hand.

But he dropped the flag and charged towards the goalkeeper – who had just got back to his feet after a scuffle.

Bohmer, who was reportedly the chairman of the Geel-Wit youth committee, landed a huge right hook before players from both teams intervened.

It is understood that the incident is still being investigated by police before it is handed over to the public prosecutor.
