Clashes' at cup final in Liversedge

Issue 471

POLICE were called to Liversedge FC’s Clayborn ground after allegations of attacks on players and abusive chanting by spectators.
Dewsbury’s Park FC were playing Fairbank United, from Manningham in Bradford, in the Wilf Ward Memorial Trophy final last Friday night when police were called by an aggrieved spectator.
Fans allegedly squared up to players during a pitch invasion after a highlycharged match in which four players were redcarded.
Officers were sent to the match and spoke to both teams after the final whistle, but no complaints or arrests were made and the person who originally called the police refused to come forward.
Fairbanks players and fans were held back at the ground after the final whistle to allow the Park FC contingent to leave first.
The Spen Valley League showpiece match went to extra time with the scores level at 22 after 90 minutes.
Park eventually emerged 43 winners, but the incident has been reported to the West Riding County FA.
