The Metropolitan police’s football unit have explained their larger than usual presence at Park View Road on Saturday.

Approximately 20 officers were present alongside stewards to control a crowd of just 809 fans who watched Welling United beat ten-man Woking 3-0.

The Met Police have told Everything Woking FC that they were there following ‘minor incidents’ in previous seasons. They told us:

‘There was a few minor issues the last time theses 2 (teams) met, so the match commander wanted extra officers so we could deal with any problems that may occur but it was a quiet afternoon.”
