Images of a set of Northampton Town fans who are believed to have caused disorder at a Sixfields home game, at which a Special Constable was assaulted, have been released in a bid to identify them.

Northamptonshire Police has launched an appeal to find five men they want to speak to in connection with the fracas that erupted when Cobblers played Walsall at home on Saturday, September 10.

Police were forced to intervene when fans from both sides became aggressive.

At the time a Northamptonshire Police spokesman said there were a number of assaults including one on a Special Constable.

Chief Superintendent Mick Stamper said: “We are continuing to investigate the incident at September’s match and we are appealing to the football community to help us with our enquiries. Anyone who recognises the men pictured is asked to call police on 101.

“The vast majority of supporters attend football matches to enjoy the game and do so peacefully; however, we are committed to dealing robustly with anyone who causes disruption.
