Driver Arrested, Sent Back To Prison After Eleven Teenagers Injured At Village Football Match

Eleven people were injured at a village soccer match when a car ploughed into fans and players after his team lost 5-0.
A 35-year-old man was arrested for driving his grey BMW onto the pitch after the final whistle of the grudge local derby at the Cornelly United ground in North Cornelly, South Wales.

Witnesses say a row was sparked between the two teams and the car then sped ‘like a bat out of hell’ through fans onto the pitch.

All the injured were aged 14 to 18 with villagers saying the worst victim has lost feeling in the right side of his body.

The arrested man is believed to be connected to local rivals Margam who lost the match 5-0.

His car was stopped in the neighbouring village of Pyle after the injuries.

Police investigating the ‘carnage’ are appealing for witnesses to give them any mobile phone footage of the incident.

But Walesonline reported that the driver has been sent back to prison after being on recall.

The 35-year-old was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent but has now returned to prison in relation to a different incident.
In a statement posted online, South Wales Police said: "We are continuing to investigate a serious collision at Cornelly Football Club shortly before 8pm last night.

"A 35-year-old man, who was arrested in connection with this incident has returned to prison due to being wanted on prison recall relating to a different incident."
