A TEENAGE football fan was attacked after he got off a coach returning from Worcester City’s FA Cup tie at Scunthorpe.

The 16-year-old was left with minor head injuries following the assault which occurred on Sabrina Bridge at 7.30pm on Sunday (December 7).

Police said a verbal altercation had taken place on one of the coaches as it returned from Glanford Park and once the victim exited with his two friends and began to walk away a group of three men approached them from behind.

They then assaulted the teen causing the injuries.

The second was slightly tanned, about 5ft 9 ins tall, of a slim build and wearing a dark blue cap and denim jeans.

No further description of the third man is known.

Anyone who saw the incident or who has information is urged to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
