Seven football fans have been temporarily banned from attending games following a police investigation into the violence which broke out at last season's Swindon Town v Port Vale play-off match.

Six people from Stoke-on-Trent and a Swindon man, 64, were given conditional cautions which ban them from going to matches for 16 weeks.

Enquiries are ongoing and police now want to track down the seven fans captured on CCTV that night who have still not been identified.

Three of those pictured are believed to be Swindon fans.

Swindon Advertiser:

Home fans flooded onto the pitch at Vale Park after their team defeated Town in a penalty shootout and secured a trip to Wembley last month. They went on to win promotion to League One.

TV footage showed some appearing to attack Town players trying to walk off the field. 

The six people cautioned from Stoke-on-Trent include a boy, 17, a woman, 18, and four men aged 20, 24, 27 and 32 after they were voluntarily interviewed.

Three men from Stoke-on-Trent, aged 19, 28 and 39, were arrested in June but they have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Officers have been working with both football clubs to investigate reports of disorder and violence before, during and after the match at Vale Park.

There were initially 15 fans pictured in the first CCTV appeal but police are still looking to identify seven.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "Detectives are keen to trace the men and women captured on CCTV as they may be able to help with the investigation.

Swindon Advertiser:

"Images one, two, seven and eight are believed to be Port Vales fans and images 11, 12 and 14 are believed to be Swindon fans."

Town fans in the crowd at Port Vale, including families with young children, told the Adver they were pelted with objects thrown by jubilant Vale supporters who ran over to confront them. 

Detective Inspector Andy Bryan, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have reviewed hours of CCTV, bodycam and TV footage so far and look to make further arrests in coming weeks.

“There’s no place in football for this sort of behaviour and we are working closely with both clubs to help locate those responsible and we will take action against anyone found to be involved.”

Anyone who knows any of the individuals pictured should contact CID North on 01785 233336, or message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter.

Those contacting police should quote the incident number 213 of 16 May and provide the reference number related to the image they are identifying.
