A non-league footballer has been sacked by his club after he tried to attack a fan after being sent off.
Goole captain Karl Colley was involved in an ugly incident during his side's game against Coalville Town when he ran into the crowd after being sent of to confront a spectator who had been criticising his performance.
Colley appeared to throw a punch at the fan, and is seen being held back from further blows being exchanged.
Now Goole, who ply their trade in Non League Division One, have confirmed that the player has been released.
A statement on their official website read: "After the deplorable incident at today's home game against Coalville Town, we can confirm that the player responsible has been released by the club.
"We are a family club and incidents of this nature have no place in football and will not be tolerated at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds.
"The club acted quickly and decisively and released the player with immediate effect and as such the player in question will never play for our football club again.
"We apologise to each and every supporter at the game today and whilst as a club, we can't legislate for incidents of this nature, we will not tolerate them from anyone."
The incident has echoes of Eric Cantona's famous 'kung-fu kick' on a fan after he was sent off for Manchester United in their game against Crystal Palace 19 years ago.
Goole went on to lose 3-0 to Coalville following Colley's departure.
