Doncaster town centre pub forced to temporarily close due to '˜mess' caused by Peterborough fans
The manager of a Doncaster town centre pub says she was forced to temporarily close the premises on Saturday afternoon, as a result of problems caused by Peterborough fans visiting the town.
General manager at the Tut ‘n’ Shive, Jeannie Harper, said on social media that she had been forced to close the pub in the run up to yesterday’s match between Doncaster Rovers and Peterborough United.
Posting in the Doncaster Rovers group on Facebook, she said: “Ended up shutting my pub in town centre for an hour today they made a right mess...just to clean up after them.”
Ms Harper claims that the Peterborough fans were then escorted by police from the West Laith Gate pub to the train station, and had been prevented from watching the match as a result of the incident.
South Yorkshire Police have been contacted for comment.
