A tackle in the final minute of the East of Scotland Conference A clash was reportedly the spark that lit the blue touchpaper and caused a mass brawl to break out between both sets of players, and allegedly Peebles coaching staff and Peebles supporters.

The SFA compliance officer Clare Whyte is looking into the referee’s report from the encounter at Whitestone Park and will decide whether or not to proceed with disciplinary measures.

Peebles were leading 4-3 when the trouble ensued.

Easthouses Lily boss David McQueenie did not want to comment on the matter.
