Burnley Substitutes Let Kids Sit On The Bench To Escape Mayhem From The Stands
Burnley substitutes allowed young West Ham fans to sit on the bench following the mayhem in the home section.
Chaos descended at London Stadium.
Not only did the players embarrass themselves following the 3-0 defeat to Burnley, but a portion of the home faithfuls also disgraced themselves after entering the field of play, and attempting to confront the board.
Fans tried to get at co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold who were told to leave the ground.
Obviously, a toxic atmosphere was created. Not safe for families and kids present.
And amidst the craziness, Burnley's substitutes let kids sit in the dug out to protect them from the violence in the stands.

Class gesture, lads.
As for the actual game of football, Burnley picked up all-three points courtesy of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood who bagged a brace.
Burnley are now 7th, two points off Arsenal, while West Ham are languishing in 16th.
