Crewe and Forest Green fans get into pathetic scrap in car park

Crewe and Forest Green fans get into a pathetic scrap in car park with footage capturing exactly what happened on Bank Holiday Monday.

A 33 second video has emerged showing the fight between groups of kids, throwing fists and kicks before it eventually calm down and they go their separate ways.

The League Two game itself saw Forest Green cause a major upset by defeating promotion-contenders Crewe with a 3-0 victory, thanks to two goals from Jordan Garrick.

Steve Cotterill’s team displayed an impressive performance, scoring three goals in just 15 minutes during the first half.

They then showcased strong defensive skills, with goalkeeper Vicente Reyes making remarkable saves in the second half to maintain their lead.

This triumph put an end to Forest Green’s three-game losing streak and further compounded Crewe’s troubles. Crewe has now lost four out of their last seven matches, diminishing their chances of securing automatic promotion.

Crewe (3-4-3): Booth; Turns (Cooney, 34), Demetriou, Billington; Adebisi, Austerfield (Leigh, 34), Holicek, Tracey; Nevitt, Kirk (Williams, 77), Long (Rowe, 46).

Subs not used: Davies, Agius, Woodcock.

Booked: Nevitt, Kirk, Adebisi

Forest Green (3-4-3): Reyes; Innis, Keogh, Moore-Taylor; Thompson, McCann (Maddox, 90), Osadebe (Bunker, 90), Robson; Doidge (Dabo, 94), McAllister (Jones, 64), Garrick (Omotoye, 64).

Subs not used: Searle, Bernard.

Booked: Inniss, Osadebe, Jones

Referee: G Eltringham.

Attendance: 5,478 (179).

โ€œI am pleased with the win; we kept a clean sheet and scored three good goals,โ€ said Forest Green boss Steve Cotterill.

โ€œAt the moment weโ€™d be thankful for any win, so to win 3-0 at a team near the top is very good.

โ€œWeโ€™ve had an incredibly difficult run since I have been here, but the lads were fantastic today.

โ€œThey were really determined and, while confidence is a word that hasnโ€™t been high on the agenda this season, the determination and resilience we showed today was excellent.

โ€œWeโ€™d won four games when I came in and now in a couple of months weโ€™ve won five, so that is a huge upturn. It has taken a lot of hard work and Iโ€™m delighted for everyone at the club as thereโ€™s not been a lot to cheer this season.

โ€œFor Jordan Garrick to get on the scoresheet was good and I thought Christian Doidge and Jamie Robson were outstanding. Jamie set the tempo for us, so much so the boys gave him a round of applause in the dressing room afterwards.โ€

โ€œI want to apologise to Crewe fans for the manner of that defeat,โ€ said Crewe’s Lee Bell.

โ€œThe first half was totally unacceptable. We had a really good crowd of over 5,000 and the club worked hard to get more supporters in, but what they saw in the first half was not was what we have been like this season.

โ€œIf we want to stay in the play-offs thatโ€™s got to stop quickly. The players were down on the floor afterwards and it is my job to pick them up.

โ€œWeโ€™ve got to embrace it and not shrink and disappear. This should galvanise the players as their pride should be hurt after that 30 minutes of football we showed in the first half.

โ€œThereโ€™s four weeks of the season left and weโ€™ve got to everything right to get in a position the fans expect us to be in.โ€
