Police appeal for information after Rams crowd trouble in Rotherham

Posted on 17th September 2018

Officers are continuing their enquiries following crowd trouble at the match between Rotherham United and Derby County at New York Stadium on Saturday, September 15.

During the game, a female Derby fan was hit by a seat thrown from the stand where Derby fans were based. She required hospital treatment for her injuries.

PC Roger Brown, Dedicated Football Officer for Derby County said: “The safety and wellbeing of all football supporters is our priority.

“The behaviour of a very small minority of Derby fans at Saturday’s game was unacceptable.

“We started our enquiries during the match and we are working hard to pinpoint those fans responsible.

“Derby County has a great fan base and I will not let the behaviour of a few individuals spoil that reputation.”
