The group were convicted of a variety of offences and issued with financial penalties totalling £19,792 and 101 years worth of Football Banning Orders between them.

Senior investigating officer Detective Sergeant Matthew Bly said: “I am delighted that we have successfully put 34 people in front of the courts and they have been prosecuted for football related disorder.

“These results would not have possible without our colleagues at Nottinghamshire Police who we worked with very closely to jointly trace and arrest these individuals who sought to carry out violence and disorder at a football match.

“This type of behaviour has no place at any football match or public event and we will work with other forces to prevent and to investigate any such disorder.”

Inspector Rob Taylor, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Nottinghamshire Police and Thames Valley Police have sent a strong message that our forces will not tolerate this type of behaviour at football matches.

“It is very disappointing that a small section of Mansfield Town Football Club supporters that day acted in such a manner, and I would like to thank the majority of Stags fans who behave well at matches for their continued support.

“Anyone who behaves in such a disorderly manner in the future can be assured of an early morning door knock from Nottinghamshire Police.”
