POLICE have released images of nine people they want to speak to about disorder at Wolverhampton Wanderers’ final home game of the season last Saturday (April 27).
After the final whistle of the match against Burnley at Molineux approximately 300 people who were sat among the Wolves supporters invaded the pitch.
Following this encroachment a number of stewards were assaulted and damage was caused to the dugout, part of one of the stands and several advertising hoardings.
Officers have been working closely with the club and want to hear from anyone who recognises any of the people in the images and can help to identify them.
PC Sean Cockerton, from West Midlands Police football unit, said: "The scenes at the final whistle last weekend were completely unacceptable and we are working hard to identify those involved.
"It was a very disappointing end to an otherwise exciting and trouble free game.
"We would ask the people in those images to come forward and speak to us and we would also appeal to anyone who can help identify them to call as soon as possible."
Anyone with any information about what happened is asked to call detectives on 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
