Video shows police swoop in as Crewe and Walsall fans in punch up outside shop

A new video uploaded online shows police swoop in as Crewe and Walsall fans get into a punch up outside a shop on Saturday afternoon.

The clip emerged following the League Two clash, with one fan seen doing some sort of slam dunk with another before an officer runs in to diffuse the situation.

Eventually, it all calmed down as the sirens ran out outside The Kitchen Place shop on Mill Street in Crewe, just a five minute walk from the stadium, near the town’s train station.

The game itself saw a late strike from Jack Powell claim a point for Crewe as they came from two down at Gresty Road through goals from Freddy Draper and Issac Hutchinson in the first half for Walsall.

However, Powell’s cross which came in to the left was missed by everyone and went straight into the net on 94 minutes after Elliott Nevitt’s effort on the hour mark had reduced the deficit.

Crewe (3-4-3): Davies; Williams (Holicek, 46), O’Riordan, Offord; Cooney (Finney, 66; O’Riordan, 90), Powell, Tabiner, Adebisi; Tracey, Long, Nevitt.

Subs not used: Booth, Woodcock, Griffiths, Billington.

Booked: Nevitt.

Walsall (3-5-2): Evans; McEntee, Daniels, Hussey; Gordon, Foulkes (Williams, 87), Stirk, Hutchinson, Tierney (Riley, 75); Draper (Oteh, 69), Johnson (Matt, 69).

Subs not used: Smith, James-Taylor, Allen.

Booked: Stirk.

Referee: S Allison.

Crewe manager Lee Bell said post-match: “I always felt we could get back into it. The lads are brilliant to work with and they are working hard and I always believe we can get back into games.

“But we can’t keep going 2-0 down in this league. We know what we have to do better so we will work hard at that.

“We had too many under par in the first half but, again, at 2-0 down you will always take a point.

“We have got a small squad and we are short in some areas. Every professional will be utilised and probably play.

“We will need everyone and as long as we are all digging in and going in the right direction we will be fine.”

Walsall’s Mat Sadler said: “I thought for 60 minutes we were brilliant and we really understood our game plan. We should have been three or four up comfortably.

“But Crewe have been 2-0 down twice before this season and we gave them the opportunity to come back again.

“The frustrating thing for me is that we were comfortable, but we gave them a leg up to get back into the game when they hadn’t deserved it. Yet even after their first goal, we dampened things down and the crowd were having a go at them.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t deal with a ball into the box and we have to improve on that. We had some fantastic pieces of play and we showed we are a proper team, a really good unit.

“Isaac drove it forward and Ryan Stirk controlled the midfield while Freddie and Danny Johnson were a handful.”
