Police want help to identify three men who are suspected of threatening rival fans during a pitch invasion at Southend United’s League Two play-off final last month.

On Saturday May 17, there was a pitch invasion after the 2-2 second leg game at Roots Hall.

The tie ended 2-3 to Burton Albion and, while the majority of fans ran to console the players, about 100 ran to the stand where the away fans were.

A number of those people used threatening behaviour towards the Burton Albion fans.

Police have identified the majority of them but still do not know the names of three men.

Following news of his surprise resignation, outgoing chairman of Chelmsford FC, Mansell Wallace, says he's stepping aside because he believes the club needs 'a younger person' to drive through changes.

In a statement, the 64 year old said "a younger person will have more energy to drive the plans through the next five years and beyond. I feel the time is right as a new appointment can be made in time for the coming season. The new Chairman can influence the organisation with his own ideas."

"We’re delighted to have secured the signature of someone of his stature,” Executive Director Andrew Cullen told the club's official wesbite.

“It’s a role we have been doing due diligence on and it’s an appointment which took time as we wanted to find an outstanding candidate with strong credentials - David fits the bill perfectly."

League One side Crawley Town have blocked an approach from Luton Town for midfielder Andy Drury.

Drury previously spent time at Luton earlier in his career, before he was snapped up by Ipswich Town for a fee of around £150,000.

The Hatters were very interested in bringing the 30-year-old back to Kenilworth Road, but Crawley still see him as a key member of their squad.

"We have rejected Luton's approach because we have absolutely no wish to sell Andy," Crawley Town Chief Executive Michael Dunford said.

"He is an integral part of John Gregory's plans for next season and a very important member of our squad."

Luton have managed to get one deal over the line today however, with Welling United striker Ross Lafayette joining on a two-year deal.
