Punch up with Notts County fans leaves Cheltenham steward bloodied

A video did emerge since yesterday’s three o’clock kick offs appearing to show a Cheltenham steward having to be dragged out of the away section after being left bloodied.

Fighting broke out in the Notts County end after they were apparently goaded by the host side’s players who celebrated taking the lead through Will Boyle on the 29th minute.

Stewards then intervened before they had a brief confrontation but police and other security have to wade in a break up the melee.

The video tweet by on Shed (@NottsCountyClub) however has since been deleted just hours after this article was published. These are some images from it…

Cheltenham issue a statement after the game, which said: “Stewards responded to an incident in the Notts County section of the ground and a brief confrontation followed.

“There were no ejections during the game but the whole incident was captured on CCTV and we will be reviewing the footage with Gloucestershire police early next week.”

The day overall was a very miserable one for the travelling fans after they went on to watch their side get a 4-1 hammering.

As mentioned, Will Boyle broke the deadlock around 15 minutes left of the first half after heading in Charlie Raglan’s superb cross.

Shortly after, Luke Varney stepped up from the spot and hit home to double Cheltenham’s lead.

It didn’t take long into the second half for the Robins to extend their lead to 3-0 thanks to Billy Waters winning a one-on-one with the opposition keeper.

20 minutes left on the clock, Notts County got a goal back after Kane Hemmings also scored a penalty, however no comeback materialise and late on, Tyrone Barnett pounced in the box from a corner kick to find the back of the net and complete the 4-1 win.

It’s reported that fans also were fighting at the final whistle too.

The result meant Notts County remained bottom of the League Two table and a worrying 7 points from safety.

Cheltenham, who have eased their relegation worries by picking up 16 points from a possible 18 in their last six home matches, sit 17th and 15 points clear of the drop.


Football fans took to social media to give their reaction on both club’s full time tweets as well as the incident itself – check out what they had to say on the next page.
