Ireland U19 Player Ignites Mass Schemozzle During Premier League U21 Game

He may have been born just two months prior, but the spirit of the 1996 All-Ireland final is ingrained in Kevin Toner.

The 19-year-old from Ashbourne was involved in a mass schemozzle during Aston Villa U21's 3-2 win against their West Ham counterparts on Monday night.

Toner, who was an unused substitute in Aston Villa's 2-1 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday, was sent off late in the game against West Ham last night.

The Meathman - capable of playing at centre-back and left-back - put in two strong challenges. He would see red for the lunge on West Ham goal scorer Jamal Hector-Ingram.

The tackles antagonised West Ham players and led to some scuffles which continued even after the referee had shown sent-off Toner.
