A ROAD-RAGE incident after Saturday's Stags' match at Field Mill involved two footballers, Chad can reveal.


Mansfield Town drew 2-2 with Barrow AFC in a bad-tempered match and it is believed two Barrow players and another man were later arrested after an incident on St Peter's Way.

Two other men also arrested were Mansfield Town stewards. They claim the players began shouting abuse at them and then over-reacted to a hand gesture as the two cars were on the ring road.

The stewards say the Barrow players - later named by the club as Nat Kerr and Carlos Logan - jumped out of the car to confront them.

It is believed one of the stewards and one of the players were given police cautions, while the other men were released without charge.

A police spokesman said: "Two people were cautioned for public order offences following an incident on Saturday on St Peter's Way."

A spokesman for Barrow confirned on Thursday: "Barrow AFC is aware that an incident happened after the Mansfield game on Saturday evening.

"The incident involved Nat Kerr and Carlos Logan while entering Nat Kerr's father's car preparing for their journey home.

"Both players were approached by two Mansfield Town stewards and a verbal exchange occurred."
