An Essex Poice spokesperson said:

“Police were contacted shortly after 10pm on Wednesday, September 25 following reports of a disturbance inside Aveley Football Club on Mill Road.

Following a series of searches and further conversations with players, officials and management teams, officers found no weapon but established that a Bury St Edmunds supporter had threatened the goalkeeper from Grays Athletic Football Club with violence, but nobody was injured and nobody made any criminal allegations”.
