The chairman of the Galway FA has said he fears that increasing tensions on football sidelines and a rise in the number of racist incidents is going to lead to a serious pitchside assault in the city or county.

“I’m beyond slightly concerned, I’m getting to a stage now where I’m fairly sure we are going to have a major incident at a match. I feel there is going to be a serious assault or someone is going to get very seriously injured,” said Tom Trill, chairman of the Galway Football Association this week.

Speaking on the Galway Advertiser‘s Cian On Sport podcast, Mr Trill said there have been some worrying trends on behaviour that he has noticed at local fixtures since the junior and juvenile season commenced in September.
