A teenager has admitted throwing a missile towards the pitch during a King's Lynn Town match at the Walks.

The 17-year-old, who can't be identified for legal reasons, was charged with an offence under the Football (Offences) Act 1991 following the incident during the Linnets' FA Cup tie with Walsall in November.

Newly-obtained court documents show the teenager pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared before the Lynn Youth Court in December.

He was given a 12 month conditional discharge and told to pay a £17 victim surcharge.

Police confirmed last month that a man in his 40s had been summonsed to appear in court accused of assault in connection with an incident at the match.

Meanwhile, the Linnets have banned one fan from the Walks for life, while two others have been excluded for the rest of the current season.
