POLICE are appealing to speak to six males in connection with incidents of alleged disorder in a Bradford City match.

These took place at Hartlepool United's hosting of the Bantams at The Suit Direct Stadium on Tuesday, March 15.

The males may have travelled up to the area for the game, which ended 2-0 in the visitors' favour.

Officers are appealing to anyone who may know the males identities to get in touch. 

Sergeant Adrian Dack, of Cleveland Police Football Operations Unit, said: "We have conducted many enquiries following this fixture where alleged serious disorder took place both during and after the match, which resulted in a number of people being injured. 

"Some individuals suspected of being involved have been identified.

"We are now asking for assistance from the public to help with identifying the males in the images as part of our ongoing investigation.

"Disorder will not be tolerated and we will pursue anyone responsible for such behaviour in order to bring them to justice.

"Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland Police on 101, quoting incident number 043268."

The Telegraph & Argus reported at the time that three Bradford men were arrested after "unacceptable behaviour" was seen inside and outside the ground.

Police dogs had to be used as officers were threatened and targeted by concrete and glass bottles, with some people even carrying sticks with nails embedded.

Bradford City launched a full investigation in the aftermath of the disorder.

A Hartlepool matchday steward was assaulted and suffered serious injuries inside the ground which required overnight hospital treatment.

The chairman of the Shipley Bantams joined City in condemning the mindless yobs who were involved in the trouble.
