9 March 2015

FA ask for clubs' observations

WEST Bromwich Albion are working with West Midlands Police and Aston Villa to identify trouble-makers from the contingent of away fans at Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final.

The game is now a subject of an FA enquiry after crowd disturbances at Villa Park.

Albion’s Facilities Operations head Mark Miles has been in touch with officials at Villa and the West Midlands Police.

CCTV footage is being studied in the quest to identify any Albion supporters guilty of disorder.

In the meantime, the FA have also confirmed that the two clubs have now been asked for their observations about the day.

An FA statement read: "The FA has contacted both Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion to request their observations in relation to the disturbing crowd incidents which occurred during and after their FA Cup quarter-final tie on 7 March 2015. 

"As well as liaising with both clubs, The FA is working closely with West Midlands Police and notes that a number of arrests have already been made. 

"All available video footage will be studied by the relevant parties to identify anyone who has committed a disorder offence inside the stadium and ensure they face the appropriate punishment. Whilst its investigation continues, The FA will make no further comment."
