THE teenager who invaded the pitch during Oxford United's defeat at Wycombe Wanderers has been banned from Adams Park for life.

The 18-year-old, from Thame, broke on to the field of play after Brandon Hanlan put Wycombe 2-0 up on the hour mark.

He ran almost the full length of the surface, via an altercation with U’s left back Steve Seddon, and goaded the away fans before he was hauled away by stewards.

Thames Valley Police confirmed yesterday that he was arrested and received a conditional caution.

Wycombe revealed he had no previous ticket history at the stadium and police confirmed he had no affiliation to United.

A later incident saw a Chairboys fan push Gavin Whyte as the U's winger retrieved the ball for a throw-in.

Meanwhile, United are still collecting evidence as they continue to investigate reports of homophobic chants at Saturday’s match.

The Sky Bet League One clash was halted in the second half after referee Anthony Backhouse spoke to Chairboys goalkeeper David Stockdale, who was at the end that housed the away fans.

The official then talked to United head coach Karl Robinson and Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth, before an announcement came over the PA system reminding supporters they would be reprimanded for using homophobic language.

United, Wycombe and the police have since released statements, with the latter saying the chants are alleged to have come from a ‘very small minority of fans in the away stand’.

The U’s today confirmed they are still collating evidence, including eye-witness reports, and continue to work with Wycombe and the police.
