Police are appealing for information and witnesses following reports of public order offences at the Wycombe Wanderers v Oxford United League One football match on Saturday (15/1).

In the second half of the match between 4pm and 4.45pm at Adams Park, Hillbottom Road, High Wycombe, it was reported that remarks of a homophobic nature were made by a small group of individuals.

Investigating officer Sergeant Simon Gray, Thames Valley Police’s Football Liaison Officer, said: “Unfortunately, we have received reports that a very small minority of fans in the away stand have made remarks of a homophobic nature during the League One match on Saturday.

“We are investigating these reports, and I would urge anybody who has any information, or who witnessed anything of this nature, to please contact Thames Valley Police on 101 or by making a report online, quoting reference number 43220021940.

“If you have information, but wish to remain anonymous, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“The vast majority of supporters at this game behaved in an exemplary manner, and were a credit to both football clubs, but we take reports of this nature very seriously and will work with both clubs to investigate these allegations.”

An 18-year-old man from Thame was arrested for an unrelated incident of pitch encroachment and received a conditional caution for this offence.
