Teenager arrested for goalkeeper attack
A teenager has been charged after Wycombe goalkeeper Jordan Archer was attacked in the closing stages of his side's 1-0 League Two victory over Gillingham.
The 19-year-old keeper, on loan from Tottenham, was placing the ball prior to taking a goal kick when a supporter entered the field and leapt towards him at the Priestfield Stadium on Monday night.
The fan was quickly apprehended by a steward and led away.
Kent Police said on Tuesday night that a 17-year-old boy from Rochester has been charged with common assault and Section 4 of the Football Offences Act.
He has been freed on bail and will appear at Medway Magistrates' Court on March 12.
