Attacked Everton fan reveals shocking wound

Attacked Everton fan reveals shocking wound

This weekend revealed there is still plenty of magic left in the FA Cup yet, after a number of upsets took place in the competition.

AFC Wimbledon rolled back the years to defeat West Ham at Kingsmeadow on Saturday evening, while Crystal Palace knocked Tottenham Hotspur out of the competition. Another one of the weekend’s highlights saw Millwall eliminate Everton at the fourth round stage, winning 3-2 at The Den in a thrilling cup tie.

Unfortunately, the result was somewhat upstaged by events that took place off the pitch. While the magic of the FA Cup was reminiscent of that of a foregone era, so was the behaviour of the Millwall supporters.

There were a number of incidents that took place, such as racist chants that were recorded by one supporter.

Before the game, another stunning incident took place as supporters of both sides clashed outside the ground. Again, it was like a scene from the 1980s as fighting took place, with one Everton fan being slashed by a knife from a Millwall supporter.

The results were pretty horrific to say the least, with the fan requiring stitches on the side of his face to repair the wound. WARNING: the photograph doesn’t make for pretty viewing.

On Saturday, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "At around 16:42hrs officers became aware of a large group of males fighting in the Hawkstone Road area.

"One male aged in his 20s was discovered suffering from a slash wound to the face. He was taken by LAS to a south London hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.

"A crime scene remains in place. Officers worked to separate the groups with support from the Mounted Branch. At this early stage, there have been no arrests."

However, the fan has since been offered free treatment by former Apprentice winner Leah Totton.

She Tweeted: "Gosh this poor man, how awful to do that to someone's face! If anyone knows this chap, please tell him to get in touch with Dr Leah Clinics once his stitches are out- we would like to offer him treatment for the scar to minimise it as much as possible, free of charge."
