After Bury goalkeeper Cameron Belford gave up a goal in an English fourth division game, he was accosted by young fans, including a pony-tailed girl who made abusive gestures at him and a teenage boy who punched the keeper in the face.
The 6-foot-2 Belford remained calm throughout the onslaught by several young Chesterfield fans. Police confirmed they arrested a 13-year-old boy on suspicion of assault and a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of a public order offense in connection with the incident at Chesterfield’s B2net Stadium.
If Chesterfield had won the game on Monday, it would have secured the League Two title. Instead, Bury, with a 3-2 win, clinched promotion and stays in contention to win the title.
