Fifteen men and two youths have appeared before magistrates in Grimsby charged with violent disorder after trouble at a football match.

Glasses, bottles and other items were thrown at a pre-season friendly between Grimsby Town and Sheffield United.

A total of 29 people were charged after rival fans clashed outside Blundell Park, Cleethorpes, in July.

Those appearing on Wednesday have had their cases moved to Grimsby Crown Court to be heard in January.

Of those charged, 17 are from the Grimsby area with 12 from Sheffield.

Those from Sheffield are due before magistrates in Grimsby on 14 December.
