Club Statement | Arrests

9 November 2022

Shrewsbury Town has worked with West Mercia Police to secure the arrest of three supporters for football-related offences during our FA Cup tie against York City.

One male York City supporter was arrested for possession and use of a pyrotechnic device and throwing an object towards the playing area.

Another male York City supporter was arrested for going onto the playing area.

And one male Shrewsbury supporter was also arrested for going on to the playing area.

Shrewsbury Town have assisted West Mercia Police in their investigations including providing CCTV evidence of the offences, and will also be liaising with officials at York City.

Supporters are reminded that such behaviour is not acceptable under any circumstances and we will be actively seeking and supporting football banning orders for the offences.

Superintendent Stu Bill said: "We have an excellent relationship with Shrewsbury Town Football Club to ensure that the vast majority of home and away fans have a safe and enjoyable experience.

“For anyone that commits a football-related offence we will look to apply for football banning orders which could prevent them from attending football matches for a minimum of three years as well as other conditions such as having to hand their passports in when the England team play abroad."
