Blackpool fans have been video recorded pitch invading following an injury time winner against local rivals Fleetwood Town on Bank Holiday Monday.

Stewards and police quickly moved the fans from the playing surface however it is yet to be confirmed whether anyone ended up getting arrested for their actions.

Watch exactly what happened in the brilliant video by ‘Under The Cosh’ below…

BLACKPOOL CLUB STATEMENT:

“Blackpool Football Club is currently working with the relevant authorities to identify the individuals who encroached onto the pitch during the match against Fleetwood Town.

“This action, from a small minority of fans, harms the club’s reputation and runs the risk of FA sanctions, which could see the club fined or forced to play its matches behind closed doors.

“The club, as well as the vast majority of its fanbase, will not accept such behaviour at matches and adopt a zero-tolerance policy on the matter.

“Those identified as engaged in such activity will be subject to the appropriate sanctions, including banning orders.”
