VIDEO: Bottles and missiles thrown between Shrewsbury and Wolves fans as trouble flares

A video of Wolves and Shrewsbury Town fans clashing during their sides’ FA Cup Fourth Round tie has been doing the rounds on social media.

As can been in the footage, missiles and bottles were thrown from supporters of both clubs, causing police to intervene with some having to hit peoples legs with a baton.

The heated scenes came just as Raul Jimenez got the Premier League side back into the game on the 75th minute mark.

Take a look at the video being seen by thousands below…

Matt Doherty saved Wolves from an FA Cup humiliation by grabbing a second with minutes to go to come away with a 2-2 draw after being 2-0 down with goals from Salop’s Greg Docherty and Luke Waterfall.

Whilst fans of both teams confronted each other, police officers got themselves between them. The Shropshire Star state that “there were no details of any arrests and West Mercia Police were unavailable for comment.”

One thing that bothered Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts was the amount of time added on towards the end of the game.

Ricketts said: “I was curious how they got six minutes. We didn’t see a physio on the pitch in the second half.

“I’ve been told it was because the ballboys were taken away but I could see them all around the ground. Admittedly, they weren’t in the corner where all the police were but I wouldn’t leave an eight-year-old there either, where the fans are fighting among themselves.

“If they are blaming us for that, it’s harsh. Six minutes is an awful long time and it gave the good players that Wolves have longer to score against us.”


After watching the footage, social media users took to Twitter to give their reaction on it, some mocking it and others with some thoughts on how the police handled it – take a look at what they had to say on the next page.
