Nuneaton executive: Anyone found guilty of offences will be banned for life

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:

The Boro is a family club and people who are looking for trouble are not welcome at our ground. Anyone found guilty of any offences today will be banned from the ground for life.The club works tremendously hard on community programmes to give young people locally aspiration and opportunities in a working class town and we see ourselves very much part of making positive things happen for the town.

62 arrested in pre-match violence in Warwickshire

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
