Club statement | Black Country derby disturbances

A general view of The Halfords Lane stand at The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion Football Club condemns in the strongest terms the unsavoury scenes which disrupted Sunday’s Black Country derby at The Hawthorns.

The match was temporarily halted in the 78th minute of the Emirates FA Cup fourth-round tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers following crowd disturbances.

The club will work with West Midlands Police and the Football Association to fully investigate the incidents which resulted in a suspension to the game.

Any individual involved in the disorder will be subject to a club ban, in addition to potential criminal investigation.

The club will make no further comment until the conclusion of a full and thorough investigation.
