Widnes Vikings release another damning statement following pitch invasion in live Premier Sports fixture

Widnes Vikings have again had to release a statement condemning a small section of their own supporters after another pitch invasion in their live game against Barrow Raiders.

The club lost 24-34 at home to Barrow, live on Premier Sports, but instead of being a good advert for the Widnes side, it was again marred by one individual’s actions.

Widnes released this statement: “Following another individual entering the pitch during last night’s home game against Barrow, we are now working with the relevant authorities to to clarify the appropriate sanctions for any individuals involved in pitch invasions.

“We have seen fantastic support from Widnes fans so far this season, who have been brilliant both home and away.

“Unfortunately, the actions of a small minority at the Challenge Cup game against Leigh Centurions last week and at yesterday’s home game with Barrow could result in serious sanctions for the club.

“We have been given photographic and video evidence of those involved in both incidents and will now work with the authorities to take action against those involved.”
