Football: Fan banned as police investigate smoke bomb in FA Cup

Turner's strike cancelled out by windy gust
Tonbridge Angels

THE management of Tonbridge Angels confirmed they have placed an immediate ban on a supporter after a smoke bomb was let off at their Longmead ground.
An arrest was made during the team’s FA Cup tie against Dartford on October 15 following the incident, which happened in the second half.
The encounter, which could have seen the Angels reach the first round of the FA Cup for the first time since the early 1970s, was watched by one of the club’s largest recorded crowds of 1,391.
However, fans were left dismayed as Dartford emerged 3-0 winners, with the ground’s bar being closed early over security concerns.
In a statement about the smoke bomb incident on its website the club said: “The perpetrator was identified at the time and the matter is currently in the hands of the police. In the meantime the club has imposed an immediate ban on the person concerned from entering Longmead.”
