Police thank Cheltenham football fans

Police made one arrest during yesterday's FA Cup game between Cheltenham Town and Hereford United at Whaddon Road. The 23 year old was arrested after running onto the pitch. He was given a formal warning under the Football Offences Act of 1991.

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.

– Superintendent Rob Priddy, Commander of the policing operation for the match
