CHESTER City secretary Michael Beech and his 17-year-old daughter Nicki were sacked on Tuesday following the club's LDV Vans Trophy match against Plymouth Argyle.
The club's general manager David Burford has alleged that Mr Beech assaulted him, causing an injury to his left ear which needed nine stitches at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
Mr Beech claims he had to defend himself in an incident after the match.
Cheshire Police said two allegations of assault were being investigated, but the inquiries were in the early stages and no arrests had been made.
Mr Burford, the Heswall-based brother-in-law of club chairman Stephen Vaughan, said he dismissed Miss Beech, who worked in the off ice at the Deva Stadium, after she had refused to sell tickets for tomorrow's FA Cup match at Radcliffe Borough in the club shop at the end of the Plymouth game.
'She twice refused to do as I asked and undermined my authority,' he said.
'I told her I was terminating her employment.' He claimed he was then challenged verbally by Mr Beech. 'He was right up to my face and I asked him to back off,' said Mr Burford.
He claims it was then he was assaulted.
During the incident Mr Beech's wife Carol, who is the club's kit manager, and their daughter were the only other people in the office.
Mr Beech, who lives in Mold, said his daughter refused to sell tickets in the shop because she was too busy doing paperwork concerning the Plymouth match and tomorrow's game at Radcliffe Borough.
Mr Beech said he asked Mr Burford what was going on and was then forced to defend himself. 'It was then he told me I was sacked,' he said.
Mr Beech arrived at the club during the ownership of American Terry Smith as commercial manager and succeeded the former Chester City Independent Supporters' Association official Michael Fair as secretary when Vaughan Promotions bought the club.
He was also the holder of the club's safety certif icate and there were concerns in the aftermath of his dismissal that last night's match between Liverpool and Newcastle United reserves at the Deva would have to be played behind closed doors.
But an agreement was hastily reached with the police and other safety authorities to temporarily transfer the certificate to another qualif ied person.
