A teenager has been arrested after Wycombe goalkeeper Jordan Archer was attacked in the closing stages of his side's win against Gillingham.

The 19-year-old footballer - on loan from Tottenham - was placing the ball prior to taking a goal kick when the supporter entered the field and leapt towards him at the Priestfield Stadium last night.

The fan was quickly apprehended by a steward and led away.

Kent Police said today: "A 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of assault and is currently in custody following an incident in the 93rd minute of the Gillingham v Wycombe match last night."
