A Dutch linesman, Richard Nieuwenhuizen, died today after sustaining a severe beating after a youth match on Sunday. Players from the Amsterdam-based club Nieuw Sloten attacked him after the match with Buitenboys. The linesman was kicked in the head, collapsed and brought to the hospital.
Three players, with ages ranging from 15-16 years old, were arrested Sunday night. Nieuw Sloten banned all players involved in the beating and removed itself from the league.
