2. Shrewsbury Town
The truth is first and second were very close to call. This is because both share the crown for the most infamous tear-up of last season.
But the runner-up spot goes to Shrewsbury Town F.C., a small club housed in a historic market town that manages to squeeze a mere 5,735 through its gates on an average matchday. Yet 0.45 percent of those in attendance have been arrested. That’s 26 in total. Whilst this isn’t the most arrests you’ll have seen on this list, it’s a high proportion and again it’s the nature of them.
Of those 26 arrests, 20 were for “violent disorder.” That’s over 75 percent. This is why the firm known as the English Border Front are now recognised internationally. It’s also why in 1998, before the FIFA World Cup in France, a list of English hooligans was sent to the press in which members of the English Border Front were specifically mentioned.
So although a small club from a small town, Shrewsbury Town F.C. make second place.
