A MAN who was arrested following an assault on an official at a football game in Anglesey was a member of the home side's coaching team, the club have said.

A 43-year-old was arrested yesterday after footage went viral of someone punching a match official at the Amlwch Town-CPD Penrhyndeudraeth game on April 27.

The Anglesey side have now put out a statement, in which they "unreservedly apologised" to the guest team and the linesman who was assaulted.

They confirmed that the man arrested by police was indeed a member of their coaching staff and that they had "severed all ties" with the coach.

A club statement said: "As a club we have been truly saddened by the events on the weekend.

"We unreservedly apologise to all at CPD Penrhyndeudraeth but nobody more so than the substitute/acting linesman who was assaulted by a member of our coaching team. 

"As a club, we condemn such behaviour and have immediately severed all ties with the coach concerned. 

"We will co-operate with all investigations with NWP, NWCFA and FAW to ensure that the correct action is taken by all parties. 

"This club is run by a tight knit team of volunteers who, alongside their full time jobs are not accustomed to incidents such as this, this level of scrutiny and nationwide publicity. 

"It was for this reason that the initial statement was released with very little detail but we felt as though making some statement was better than none.

"It is not fair to tarnish the players, coaches, volunteers and supporters with the same brush due to the actions of one individual. 

"We won’t be making any further comment on the matter until such time as any investigation is concluded and hope, if permitted, to finish the season for the remaining players who have not committed any wrongdoing."
