Officers in Market Harborough are continuing to investigate reports of disorder following a football match between Market Harborough Town and Corby Town on Saturday (28 January).
Following the end of the game – which had kicked off at 3pm – police attended the ground in Northampton Road to deal with the crowds and ensure the groups left the area safely.
However, it was reported that a man in his 20s was hit in the face. He was treated at the scene by the football club’s paramedics and officers, before being taken for further medical treatment.
As a result of the disorder a dispersal order – which granted police the power to move on anyone deemed to be a nuisance or who was committing a crime – was in place in the area until midnight.
Sergeant Ryan Coleman from the Market Harborough Neighbourhood Policing Area (NPA), said: “Our enquiries to establish the circumstances of the disorder and who was involved are continuing this week.
“I’m particularly keen to speak to anyone who was at the match and captured any footage on their mobile phone. We have set up a dedicated link where any videos can be uploaded. This can be accessed by visiting https://unitedkingdom1cpp-portal.digital-policing.co.uk/leics/appeal/appeal-from-market-harborough-officers-following-football-related-disorder
“Likewise, I’d encourage anyone who thinks they can help but who has not yet spoken to police to come forward.”
