Police began arresting dozens of people on suspicion of violent disorder at The Granby pub in Nuneaton town centre Saturday afternoon.
Nuneaton Town Chief Executive Ian Neale says police went to The Granby pub to organise an escort to town for Nuneaton fans, but only three people said they were interested in going to the match:
62 people were arrested in the build-up to a non-league football match. Riot police were called to deal with violent disorder after problems at several pubs in Nuneaton in Warwickshire yesterday.
Officers from three forces and the British Transport Police had to be brought in shortly before 10.30am after reports of trouble.
The arrests were made before a non-league fixture between home side Nuneaton Town FC and Lincoln City FC.
Nuneaton Town chief executive Ian Neale said the trouble was nothing to do with the football club or its supporters
