YouTuber MiggyE91 has uploaded a damning video showing Bolton’s stewards using excessive force on a Reading away fan on Saturday.
The Royals picked up a 1-1 draw at the Reebok Stadium in the Championship, however after the game one supporter was filmed getting physically manhadled by what appeared to be a bullying steward.
As explained in the YouTube video’s description:
After staying behind, wishing to applaud the players whilst they warmed down, we [Reading fans] were asked to leave. As we started to walk away, the players emerged from the tunnel to warm down. We walked left towards the section of the pitch where the players were.
One of the stewards (aggressively) told us to leave. We suggested to him we may as well leave through the exit that we were heading towards. He started shouting at us asking us why we had ignored his orders to leave via the exit we were walking away from.
All of a sudden, one steward in particular decided to speed our exit up and subsequently pushed my friend (in the video). I then started filming.
The secret filming of Bolton’s stewards using excessive force against a Reading fan can be seen below.
