Hereford fans travelled to Darlington for their National League North fixture, however whilst majority behaved well, others didn’t as you can read by the headline.
Darlo supporters allegedly witnessed young children being hit and bottles being thrown by those in the Bulls away end. Punches also are said to have been thrown outside the ground.
Didn’t catch the stone island pop up shop outside the ground but the Hereford firm are in town, funny how they all flooded straight out of the gates as soon as the full time whistle blew since they refused to leave when they were asked to during the match? pic.twitter.com/3u9VSSqoAR

Bradley Cotton wrote on Facebook: “Hereford fans are horrible cunts hitting young children during and after the game ???”
“I was right next to the 15 year olds and we were calling them sheep shaggers.”
Carl Allen added: “The thing that makes me laugh is obviously they’ve made a point in going towards the corner flag / tin shed area to provoke the Tin Shed in both halves, then when the young girl and her poor dad got set about the stewards tried to remove the Darlo fans from the ground yet leave the Hereford fans in their to provoke and create more bother, could of been handled so much better from a stewarding side and would of prevented any further bother, report it to the club and hopefully things will be resolved. I don’t know what started it but seen them charge him and throw punches the poor lass was crying her eyes out, who they were sound mate we all love following our team , hopefully it’s just a storm in a tea cup.”
Hereford ended up holding on to pick up a point and end Darlington’s run of six wins on the bounce in all competition but still are seven games unbeaten and three clean sheets in a row.
The goalless result means Darlington sit 12th with 21 points and Hereford are a place above in 11th with 22 points, after 15 minutes played.
