Yeovil Town have issued a statement relating to an incident that occurred in the Whaddon Road End of the ground at this afternoon's League Two match against Cheltenham Town. The problems broke out around the 74th minute of the match, shortly after the Glovers had made their third substitution of the match, and lasted a couple of minutes, with around two people being led out at the end of the incident.
As far as we are aware, there were no injuries. There were no Cheltenham Town fans involved in the incident. General opinion of fans in the area was that it was sparked after there was open dissent to the choice of the substitution from a number of fans who booed when Tom Eaves was withdrawn from the field of play.
The club's complete statement read as follows:
"Yeovil Town Football Club are aware of reports, footage and imagery regarding supporter disorder in the away end at Cheltenham Town this afternoon. The Football Club is proud of its family supporter base and reputation within the EFL, and take issues regarding supporter disorder very seriously. The club will endeavour to work with Cheltenham Town and the authorities to identify those involved and take the appropriate action."
At present, it's not clear whether the person(s) removed from the stadium were merely ejected, or whether there were any arrests in connection with the incident.
