An 18-year-old man from Thame has been arrested for encroaching onto the Adams Park pitch during Wycombe Wanderers’ 2-0 win over Oxford United on January 15.

In the 65th minute of the contest, a man was seen running onto the field of play with his arms in the air.

Several of the Oxford United players, most notable Gavin Whyte and Steve Seddon, attempted to stop the spectator from continuing his run.

However, after some pushing and shoving within the cluster of players, the spectator was removed from the pitch by several stewards.

It was later revealed to a source close to the BFP that the 18-year-old man ‘is not a fan of the two clubs.’

Thames Valley Police have also confirmed that they are appealing for witnesses to help with their enquiries, following the alleged homophobic comment that was said from the away end on the same day.
