Two men have been arrested and bailed after two footballers sustained serious facial injuries at an Isle of Man match.
The players were injured when violence broke out during and after the Premier League match between Laxey and St John's at Glen Road on Saturday.
Police said the two men, aged 55 and 21, were helping with enquiries but the investigation was ongoing.
Ten players were booked and two sent off during the match at Glen Road.
A spokesman for the Isle of Man Football Association said all the facts would be assessed before it decided what sanctions to impose.
He added that the "FA will not accept this sort of behaviour".
Laxey, who are second in the league, won the match over fourth placed St John's, 3-2.
