POLICE have released a second batch of images of suspected football hooligans at the Carling cup game after spending weeks trawling through CCTV footage.

CCTV stills of 15 men, all believed to be West Ham supporters, were released by police in relation to the violent match between their club and Millwall FC in Upton Park on August 25.

Officers would like to speak to the men, whose images were taken from footage taken within the grounds, in relation to the numerous pitch invasions.

A further eight men were arrested last week, bringing the total to 29. Of these, 20 have been charged, six are on bail, two have been released with no further action and one received a caution for pitch invasion. Deakin Glyn, 34, of Village Court, Hurren Close, Blackheath, was banned from football matched for three years, sentences to 100 hours of unpaid work to be done in the next year and £55 costs after he pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour.

22-year-old Lee Howard, of Elmstead Lane, Chislehurst, was also banned from matches for three years and ordered to do 100 hours of community work after he pleaded guilty to the same charge. He was also fined £100 and forced to pay £87 costs.

At the time of going to press a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Service were unable to tell the Times if they had finished looking through the CCTV footage.

This comes after both clubs were given an extension by the Football Association on Monday (12) to respond to the charges that were dished out to them on September 28.

West Ham were charged on four counts of failing to control their supporters whilst Millwall were charged with three counts of the same offence.

Millwall were charged with failure to ensure their supporters refrained from violent, threatening, obscene and provocative behaviour; failure to ensure their supporters refrained from racist behaviour and failure to ensure their supporters didn't throw missiles, harmful or dangerous objects onto the pitch.

West Ham were charged with all of the above and failure to ensure their supporters didn't enter the field of play.

Now both clubs are expected to respond to the FA next week before their punishments are announced.

One 43-year-old Millwall fan from Eltham was stabbed outside the grounds before the match and West Ham's Carlton Cole and Millwall's Jason Price claim they were racially abused by fans.

Anyone with information can call 0208 217 5039 or to remain anonymous Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
