The match had to be abandoned after the fracas, with the home side Dorking earning themselves a 3-0 win.

The video below shows the away player's reaction to being given his marching orders. Fans in the stands can be heard saying how he had 'only been on the pitch five minutes.'

Epsom & Ewell's number 12 can be seen pushing the referee and home players before swinging punches at other players as they attempted to defuse the situation.

Epsom & Ewell have since released a statement, confirming the player in question has been released from the club with immediate effect.
