Happens at every club unfortunately, stewards should've made more of an effort or should i say FGR should've hired more than 6 stewards for our stand. The steward by us had the gate open ready for the final whistle from when the 4th official had the added on time announced to allow people onto the pitch.

I personally didn't go onto the pitch and didn't see anything untoward other than a few goading the Main* stand fans. Which is rather hypocritical considered they didn't like it when a few from Lincoln did likewise to them a few weeks ago.

*Nothing really main about it.

Wouldn't say it ruined it but it did take a bit of gloss off it and, although it was mainly joy, there did seem to be a bit of nastiness mixed in. All over very quickly but not our finest moment, I'd say. Nors was well irritated by it.

Nors looked more than irritated to the extent of pushing fans off him. Cant blame him to be honest, you dont know what idiot may be jumping on you nowadays

Haven't read or seen anything about FG players being 'attacked'! If so I would imagine a very hefty fine or worse is on its way!! If that is the case I hope those 'fans' are quickly identified and banned for life. However, I think there may be a bit of poetic scaremongering in the original post!!

Although I don't like fgr or there manager or there fans I do not condone that sort of behaviour attacking there players was idiotic .verbena banter is enough. This could cost the club money .hope if any of the fans are identified they should be held account and banned attacking players on the pitch is something we don't ever want to see at any football match at any level .and we for sure don't want to tarnish tje famous SWA with that sort of stupidity

Nors has said on his Twitter that he was pushing people off him as he was approaching a FGR player (presuming McGinley) who was then punched by one of our 'fans'. HE wouldn't have reacted like that if that incident of cowardice hadn't of taken place.

Pitch intrusion is a breach of FA rule E.20 the maximum fine under the rule is 250k and 2 point deduction. Rule E.21 places the responsibility for player safety on each team involved in the game. The FA are very pro-active in penalising such breaches. The rule is breached even when the intrusion is a celebratory one, in 2015 reading were fined 100k for a celebratory breach after defeating Bradford in the FA cup semi final although on appeal it was reduced to 40k. Sentencing and fine is based on a number of aspects, efforts made by the team in breach to prevent the intrusion, the nature of the breach and wether any player confrontation occurred and wether any player was placed in danger, and wether the club inquesationhas had any previous discipline breachesthese are aggravating factors, given the game was broadcast live on Sky and is part of the EFLs end of season show piece its highly likely both clubs will be asked as a minimum to provide accounts for the breach of rule E.20 under rule E.21and following review of the referees report, should the FA feel at that point they are unsatisfied with either clubs response they may choose to instigate full disciplinary proceedings. They may equally choose not to request accounts. Clearly this decision is down to the FA and in no way am I insinuating that any account has been requested or will be requested, I am simply explaining the rules!

If true then I am darned sure Cooper would be raising this with the FA to try and get game replayed. Not a word from him. Or anyone else on social media. Or perhaps Goosed can point us at some factual evidence . I am sure Sky would have replayed any attacks. And news items on the topic would abound.

It was probably a little slap rather than a full force punch, however it's still an assault on their player.

If there was any concrete evidence, you can bet your mortgage that Cooper would be allover it.

It tarnishes our club and needs to be stamped out.

Why can't people just be happy that we've smashed our FGR demons and won, instead of acting like thugs.

As well as giving the club a bad name, it also tarnishes Birkenhead, especially in a televised game.

Hope these morons are identified and dealt with accordingly.

Pretty clear it did happen if you read Nors’ tweet. But there’s no evidence it was “some” fans. Appears to have been one mindless idiot. Inexcusable behaviour rightly condemned but no grounds for smearing SWA in general. Interesting the story wasn’t taken up by FGR or their local press. Indeed FGR fans complained rather more about the over enthusiastic security presence at their end of the ground.

Hopefully the culprit will be suitably dealt with and our fans’ reputation restored.

There are certain mindless so called Tranmere fans at every game. And Norwood mentioned one incident not 'some' . and not even that the supporter was a Tranmere one. Is there a tweet from the punched player? I don't think it was sensible to use Twitter for this anyway.

And as hoots said, where is the "well done" post.

Norwood and the Forest Green players should have been on the pitch. The fans shouldn't so they were the ones in the wrong.

Sorry I totally disagree with this.As we saw earlier this season a pitch invasion can potentially put players at serious risk.Whether one or more spectators it is inappropriate behaviour and I certainly hope those involved are banned.
That said it seems from the FGR forum that stewarding is poor both in terms of the number and the response and that may explain the host clubs silence as they in part culpable.
Condemning the incident has nothing to do with celebrating a superb win.Stupid behaviour exposes the club to redress and silly behaviour harms the club.For those who care about the club it is right and proper that the behaviour is condemned and that those with knowledge cooperate with the club

Hoots. MrGr33n13 is simply a slightly (and only slightly) more eloquent Baldy, who posts ridiculous comments purely to annoy more reasoned posters. I gave up reading his dirge ages ago. He won't give up now someone has risen to the bait. Please don't give him the satisfaction of goading you or virtually everyone else in this thread who didn't like the pitch invasion.

It's telling Nora has deleted the tweet.

No-one knows what happened. I've seen a video of fgr players wading into kids on the pitch.

I like a celebratory pitch invasion. It's all done in good spirits and high jinx. Even when bury fans do it on our pitch.

I'm glad the game isn't so sanitised and devoid of passion that a pitch invasion is looked down upon by all.

Hail hail

A bit rich from Nors who deliberately walked in front of the FGR fans with his MOM award and a big grin on his face having also celebrated in front of them when scoring. He should think before putting anything on social media.
All the blame lies with FGR who's stewards should have stopped the invasion. I was in the stand and looking forward to cheering the players off as they exited the pitch but was denied that.

The team came back out after the fans subsided. I have to say that I don’t really rate invading the pitch but their stewards practically begged the fans to by opening the gate where I was!

A pitch invasion purely for celebratory reasons is okay, but if the behaviour then extends to any forms of violence, damage to fixtures and fittings or verbal abuse then it isn't.

One of the worst was the one at Brighton's old Goldstone Ground where some fans badly damaged one of the goals and it brought shame on the club. It even got referenced on Match Of The Day and that was just a premier league edition, not an FA cup one.

If you watch old editions of the Big Match, every game was accompanied by a pitch invasion at the final whistle. At Goodison they had to avoid being decapitated by flying cushions thrown from the top balcony, frisbee style.

Just search twitter for videos meant to show Tranmere fans punching FGR players.

They show FGR players jumping in on groups of teenage swa.

The police have searched footage and CCTV and state that no assault happened. No player made a complaint. And all there was referring to a punch is a now deleted Norwood tweet.

Who knows what he saw and how he misinterpreted it.

It was a good natured pitch invasion and theres not a shred of evidence to say otherwise

Anyone remember when we stayed up by the skin of our teeth against Stockport? Pretty embarrassing pitch invasion and destruction of goalposts by some oafish TRFC 'supporters' on that day...

But I agree - lets concentrate on the footie and our big day out for the third season in a row.

“However CCTV was reviewed and there was seen to be no physical contact or act of aggression.

“On the night we had no reports of an assault and we have since been in contact with Forest Green Rovers to clarify whether any other incidents took place.
