    As Jones and his teammate Jack Higgins dragged Bangor’s Tom Clarke to the ground, the defender seemed to be punched by Jones, and bottles were thrown in their direction.

    Nonetheless, Jones was not done, and he ran up to Clarke and punched him in the face, setting the place on fire.

    To defuse the incident, staff and substitutes from both teams flooded the field and Rhyl players had to physically remove Jones from the field.

    In response, Lock, Liam Morris, and Corey Jones, all of Bangor, exchanged fists, leading to Jones’s ejection.

    The corner kick was never taken, and the game ended with red cards for both Higgins and Aaron White of Rhyl.
