Swans Fans Arrests Blemish Win

Swans Fans Arrests Blemish Win

South Wales police were out in force yesterday in Swansea City's 3-2 win over Leeds United .

In a fractious game Police officials have confirmed there have been 6 arrests made at the Liberty Stadium during the game 4 or which were Swansea supporters.

Fans have criticised the Police for their containment procedures at the end of the match as a cordon separated Swansea fans from their Leeds counterparts.

It left supporters climbing a grass bank to get onto the main road as the Police were not allowing any fans behind the North Stand.

Swansea fans were also involved in a incident where it is alleged that a small group of home supporters tried to board the Leeds United coach after the game.

There has been no offical confirmation of this event as yet.

Insp Colin Wooldridge did however confirm that damage had been caused by missiles thrown at the Leeds coaches.

He Told The Western Mail

'A couple of the away coaches were also damaged near the ground after some had bottles and things thrown at them'


These actions are deplorable and do not reflect the true support that Swansea City get.

As a Leeds fan but Welshman I can honestly say I was embarrased by the afters at yesterday's game. I left the game a few minutes before the final whisltle to ensure I got my 12year old and his mate away safely. Unfortunately we got on the double decker that was leaving then but got held up by a bus in front of it....35 mins later the overcrowded bus got pelted by stones and both my young son and myself where on the left side of the bus and the window to our side got bricked from the other side of the road. We were both showered with glass. This afternoon he had a piece of glass removed from underneath his eye which could have been a lot worse than it was. I just hope the Police laid into this mindless idiot - I know nothing about the shooting tasha and I hope those people get caught. Btw, there were Swansea fans on that double decker bus too...doh

really i think the police were aiming at the wrong crowd! yes there was lots of violence but i really think they should sort the bus situation out! they brought all the buses out the wrong time! as if they wanted violence! as soon as the police backed down! and as soon as the crowd ran to top the street the busses came out!
