A man was removed from the New Bucks Head on Saturday after an object was thrown in the direction of Coalville Town FC's goalkeeper, Paul White.

The match between AFC Telford and Coalville came to a brief halt while the referee removed the object, which appeared to be a disposable vape, from the pitch.

A West Mercia Police spokesman confirmed their officers stepped in to remove a "young man" who threw "an object at a player", but said no arrests had been made.

The projectile did little for Telford's fortunes, as the 0-1 loss saw the club's exit from the Emirates FA Cup.

AFC Telford United has been approached for comment.
