A 41-YEAR-OLD Oulton man has appeared in court after violence flared at a youth football match.

Alexander Taylor, of Whiting Road, is alleged to been involved in an incident at the Gorleston Recreation Ground, which led to him and three other people being arrested by police on the suspicion of assault.

The altercation is said to have taken place on January 24 during a Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League's shield quarter finals involving Gorleston Rangers under-16's B team and Hempnall under-16s.

On Monday, Taylor appeared at Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court to be charged with assault.

He entered no plea and his case was adjourned for a week.

Taylor was released on bail with the condition that he does not attend any matches organised by the Football Association.

A 33-year-old woman and a youth who were also arrested on suspicion of assault were released without charge while the other person arrested - a second youth - was referred to the youth offending team for a final warning.
