Police appeal after teenage boy is injured in altercation at youth football game

A 15-year-old boy who was playing in a youth football game in Burnham was assaulted by two men on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

The victim was playing for Lambourn FC's under 16 side against a Burnham Juniors youth team when an altercation took place in the second half.

Police said the boy was assaulted by two men and suffered bruising to his chest and injuries to his face and leg.

He was treated in hospital but has since been discharged.

The incident took place at the George Pitcher Memorial Ground, in Britwell Road.

PC Matt Styles, investigating officer said: “We would be keen to hear to anyone who was at the match and witnessed the altercation to contact us.”

Call PC Styles on 101 quoting URN 1250 5/3 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
