Man arrested after coins thrown during Falkirk-Dunfermline derby match

A man’s been arrested and charged after coins were thrown at a footballer during a recent match at the Falkirk Stadium.

The 25-year-old is expected to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court at a later date.

The incident took place during the recent Falkirk versus Dunfermline match, with the coins thrown at a Dunfermline player.

The objects missed though – and the player was not injured.

Detective Sergeant Kenny Halliday, Forth Valley’s Dedicated Football Officer, said, “Throwing items on the pitch or at people is a reckless and disruptive act.

“We remain committed to pursuing those who attempt to cause others harm and ruin the game for the majority of responsible fans.”

It’s the latest in a series of incidents in Scottish football, where coins have been thrown by supporters.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was hit during Saturday’s game at St Mirren while, last week, Hibs boss Neil Lennon was struck in the face during the Edinburgh derby.

Earlier in the season, an assistant referee was struck during a Premiership match between Livingston and Rangers.
