A group of Burnley FC fans are being sought after wooden seats and bottles were thrown during a Premier League match.

Police are looking to speak to several men after the incident during the Burnley vs Arsenal match at Turf Moor on Saturday, September 18 with the items being thrown in the Cricket Field Stand.

No injuries were reported by fans, though a steward was hit.

Police are now asking for the public’s help to identify the men in the images – all believed to be Burnley fans.

PC Dan Fish said: “Football matches should be safe, family-friendly events, and the kind of disorder seen at the end of the Burnley v Arsenal match is unacceptable. It was simply due to luck rather than judgment that nobody was seriously injured.

“An investigation to identify those responsible has been ongoing since September and we would now like to speak these 14 men as part of our enquiries. If you think you know who any of them are, please let us know.”

Police in London have also been working to identify Arsenal fans.

A spokesman for Burnley FC said: “Following the disorder at the Burnley v Arsenal match at Turf Moor on Saturday 18th September 2021, both clubs have worked with Lancashire and Metropolitan Police to identify the individuals responsible.

“Several individuals have already been identified and are currently banned.

“Burnley and Arsenal have stated that those responsible will receive lengthy bans in addition to any conviction from the courts. Both clubs strongly condemn the behaviour of their fans.

“We ask that the public contact the police with any details of those contained within the pictures circulated.”
