There was a big crowd at yesterday’s game but we’re pleased to report that both sets of fans interacted well with each other, our officers and Whaddon Road staff. Other than the one arrest there were no other incidents at the match that required police action.
We’d like to thank both Hereford and Cheltenham supporters for helping us give them a safe and respectful environment to enjoy that match.
