CCTV appeal after man injured at football match

Do you recognise these men? Police want to speak to them after an Imps fan was injured by rival supporters who threw coins and bottles at each other.

It happened at Sincil Bank in Lincoln during the match against Mansfield Town on November 24.

One Lincoln City season ticket holder, a 51-year-old man, was hit in the eye by an object causing injury.

The long-term prognosis for his vision is still to be determined.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: “If you are one of these people or if you recognise them and have not yet contacted the police then please call us as a matter of urgency as you may have information which is vital to our investigation.”

“If you can help, please call us on 101, quoting incident number 18000569163, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Police said they are working closely with Lincoln City Football Club and appreciate their support in this investigation.
