Police charge suspected Atherstone football yobs

Police have charged 29 suspected football hooligans following an out break of violence at an FA Cup match last year.

The ugly scenes occurred at half-time during Atherstone Town’s FA Cup clash with Barrow in October.

As a result of an investigation into the incident, Warwickshire Police made a total of 34 arrests.

In addition to the 29 who have been charged with violent disorder at the Adders home game, one other person was released without charge and the others accepted police cautions.

The suspects, who nearly all come from the Atherstone area, are due to appear at Leamington Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
