Following incidents of disorder around this weekend’s fixture at the New Den between Millwall and Everton, the FSF has issued the following statement:

We condemn all football violence and we’re sure the police will seek to identify the perpetrators. There’s no room for complacency but the actions of a small number of people shouldn’t mask the fact that the overwhelming majority of fans want nothing to do with such behaviour and don’t want these people in stadiums. Football arrest figures are at an historic low and supporters are very unlikely to encounter such incidents.
