VIDEO: Newport fans throw rocks and bottles at Tranmere supporters’ coach following playoff final

A video has been uploaded online appearing to show Newport County fans throwing rocks and bottles at a coach full of Tranmere Rovers supporters.

11,000 of the Amber Army turned up to Wembley Stadium for much anticipated League Two playoff final, however ended up watching their side lose 1-0.

It came when there was two minutes left of extra time and Rovers’ Connor Jennings sent the men from the Wirral into dreamland getting on the end of Caprice’s delivery and headed the ball across the line.

The defeat was too much to take for a selection of Newport fans however as after the game they launched missiles at the buses awaiting to depart the ground.

One young kid inside a coach can be heard asking about what was going on before stating that they were just ‘jealous’.

Watch the video clip for yourself below…

It is also claimed by @Kyletrfc03: “The newport fans shit themselves after our fans have retaliated and then called the police.”

@yogz66 added: “Despite the higher ground, fronted up and backed them off. One left on the road sparked out. Cunts they mayve been….meet more than their match.”

Another video shows how a Newport fan got battered by Tranmere lads…

Despite suggestions police were phone, it seems no arrests were made and eventually trouble passed off without before escalating.

One talking point on fans at the game however was the national anthems being booed. Newport could be heard doing it to the British’s ‘God Save The Queen’ and Tranmere did the same for the Welsh’s Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau.


That along with the fans throwing rocks and bottles at a Tranmere supporters coach also got much reaction from social media users – find out what was said on the next page.
