In a social media status this morning, Sgt O’Loan said :
“A big thank you to all Coleraine fans who attended yesterday’s match at the show grounds, it was an exciting encounter that ended 2-2 following a great comeback by the Bannsiders. The match made for a very enjoyable afternoons entertainment and excellent family event.
Also thanks to all Coleraine fans for your patience when exiting the ground at the end of the game.
Unfortunately a small section of the away fans decided it would be a bright idea to let off a flare in the away stand during the match and further flares were thrown on Ballycastle Road after the final whistle. Police have launched an investigation, if you witnessed anything or can identify any of the offenders please contact police at Coleraine on 101 quoting incident number 416 25/09/16 or via Crimestoppers.
See you for the big derby next week.
