Police have today released 16 new images of men they wish to speak to in connection with violence at an FA Cup semi-final match between Millwall and Wigan last month.
Fighting allegedly erupted amongst fans of the south London side after the game at Wembley on April 13 which they lost 2-0.
Ten men have so far been charged in relation to the violence - nine for violent disorder, one for breaching a Football Banning order, according to the Metropolitan Police.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes, senior investigation officer of Operation Arrowtip, the Met’s football related crime and disorder team, said: “The recent charging of 10 suspects represents the first batch of criminal charges in relation to the post-event investigation.
“We all remember the violent images of what happened at Wembley that day. Violence has no place in football and I again thank the media and public for the support they have shown.”
The nine men who have been charged with violent disorder are: John Kenny, 38, of Tyrrell Ave, Welling; Terry Fraser, 23, Abercorn Way, Southwark; Jordan Newbery, 22, Cheyne Close, Bromley; Michael Thomas, 24, of Bramcote Grove, Southwark; Paul O’Kane, 50, of Sidcup Road, Eltham; Jack Pinnell, 27, Trothy Road, Southwark; Jamie Jeffery, 22, Ross Way, Greenwich; Joey Winser, 25, of Splendour Walk, Southwark; and Lloyd Stephens, 37, Millender Walk, Southwark.
John Manzaroli, 35, of Onslow Gdns, Kensington, has been charged with a breach of Football Banning order.
