Statement - Incident At Wigan Cosmos Game

NUFC Logo Newcastle United FC

The Club have condemned the actions of a minority of Newcastle fans involved in the vandalism of equipment at a South Lancashire Counties game

Newcastle United are very disappointed with the behaviour of a minority of its fans who were involved in the vandalism of equipment belonging to Wigan Cosmos Football Club and pitch incursions during their game against AFC Leigh Centurions on Sunday, 17th March which caused the match to be stopped.

Our travelling fans have a very good reputation, but the actions of a minority on this occasion were wholly unacceptable. Football, at all levels of the game, deserves the same degree of respect whether it is played in the Premier League or at the grassroots level.

We were sorry to learn that this South Lancashire Counties Premier Division game was disrupted in this manner and we would urge anyone who witnessed this incident to contact Greater Manchester Police.

The Club will be contacting Wigan Cosmos to arrange to reimburse them for the damage.
