King’s Lynn Town Football Club have been reported to the FA over an incident at last night’s 3-2 thriller against Hereford.

A blue smoke bomb was thrown onto The Walks pitch shortly after Toby Hilliard scored the winning goal in the Southern Premier League game. It is not known who threw the flare.

There were also clashes between rival fans outside the ground, although no arrests were made.

Linnets spokesman Mark Hearle said: “There were some skirmishes after the game which were dealt with swiftly by the constabulary.

“The main concern of the club is the smoke bomb. We now have to wait to see what action the FA will take against us as a club.”

A spokesman for the Football Association said it would wait for the referee’s report before deciding what action to take.

Police said no arrests were made but an officer was taken to hospital after he fell and injured his knee.
