POLICE are appealing for the identity of two people who they want to speak to in connection with football-related disorder.

The incident that Greater Manchester Police want to speak with the two males about happened on April 9 in the aftermath of a Bolton Wanderer's fixture with Sheffield Wednesday.

A GMP Bolton West Spokesperson said: "Do you recognise these males? We want to speak to them following football-related disorder on 9 April following Bolton Wanderers' fixture against Sheffield Wednesday.

"Anyone with information should call 0161 856 4942 or email sopu@gmp.police.uk."

The appeal comes in the wake of Bolton Wanderer's CEO claiming that the club is dealing with such instances in an effective and sensible way.

More than 30 banning orders were issued by the club last season after flare-ups of trouble in several games.

“We have had issues with a minority of supporters and we are trying to deal with that in a sensible, common sense way," club CEO Neil Hart said.

"We have done a lot of work on a one-to-one basis with some of those individuals, brought them in and talked to them, and that has been directed by myself, our safety officer Ben Cowcill, we have had Phil Mason from Bolton Wanderers in the Community involved and John McGinlay as well.

"It is a good team of people who have talked to people who have caused disorder and disrupted the fanbase.

“That is working and we are trying to get people engaged in a positive way."
