Hereford FC club officials have confirmed they are investigating incidents at Farnborough at the weekend that saw a small number of smoke grenades thrown onto the field of play, seemingly from areas in the ground where Bulls fans were located.
The club had this to say in a statement on the club website:
‘The club will not tolerate this type of behaviour from any of its supporters and when the individuals responsible are identified they will be dealt with severely.
Match officials at the game advised our management team that the game was close to being abandoned and clearly the smoke grenades are not only a danger to supporters at the game, the actions of a tiny number of individuals could also have a negative impact on the efforts of the players on the field. This is in addition to any post-match punishment the club might face from the football authorities.
If anyone has information about the individual or individuals involved in the incidents with the smoke grenades yesterday, please make contact with the club as soon as possible. Anyone who believes it is sensible to enter a football stadium with a smoke grenade and throw it onto the field of play is not welcome to associate themselves with Hereford FC. The club has already been made aware of names and images circulating on social media – which is being looked into – but would still ask anyone with further information to contact us at email@example.com.’
