A SOLICITOR has appealed for soccer fans to come forward to help his clients.
Four Huddersfield Town fans have been charged with public order offences after trouble flared in a Bradford pub.
But the solicitor for two of them, Michael Sisson-Pell, of Huddersfield firm Carr and Co, said all four had pleaded not guilty and urged other fans in the pub at the time to come forward and give statements.
The trouble flared in the Ring O'Bells pub on Bolton Road in Bradford at about 2.30pm on Saturday, March 5 just before Town's game against Bradford in the city.
Another Town fan, Stan Frontczak, claimed he was roughed up in the pub by police and complained to the Examiner at the time.
He said police had their batons drawn and lashed out at Town fans in the pub for no reason.
Mr Sisson-Pell said: "There were 70 or 80 people in that pub, most of them from Huddersfield.
"I would urge anyone who saw what happened to contact me."
The four Huddersfield men who were arrested are due to go on trial before Bradford Magistrates on February 6 next year.
Anyone who would be prepared to give a witness statement should ring Mr Sisson-Pell on 01484 511994.
