Some can be seen struggling to keep their balance as the brawl grows more violent and more people join in.
Players from both grassroots teams then leap over a barrier to try to break up the fighting.
As more players congregate to stop the melee, officials can be heard desperately blowing their whistles to restore some order.
It is not clear why the fight erupted but it is understood the game had to be halted, reports The Sun.
Chatham Town Sundays later went on to beat Dolphin Kings FC 3-0 to win the cup.
