Bristol Rovers have today issued a club statement about the trouble involving the stewards at Port Vale on Saturday.

The statement reads:

Bristol Rovers FC are, of course, aware of some unsavoury incidents at the game against Port Vale on Saturday.

Because the match took place at Vale Park, any investigation into the incidents has to be led by Port Vale FC and the Staffordshire Police.

We have been inundated with eye witness accounts which we have forwarded to Port Vale and Avon and Somerset Police, who had spotters at the game.

At this stage, and because investigations are ongoing, it would be inappropriate for Bristol Rovers FC to make any further comment at present.

Anyone who saw or was caught up in the events should contact Staffordshire Police by calling 101 and quoting incident number 238 of the 18th February, or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.

Below is a video from a Rovers fan in the away end in which you can clearly see a steward throwing punches at Rovers fans.
