FA decision on Coloccini coin throwing incident

7 years ago

The FA have come to a decision following Fabricio Coloccini being struck by a coin as the players celebrated Papiss Cisse’s goal at Selhurst Park.

Rather than punishing the club for the actions of one of their supporters, instead the FA are concentrating on working with Crystal Palace to identify the culprit.

The coin thrown from the Holmesdale Road end of the stadium,  struck the Newcastle Captain in the face, narrowly missing his eye.

CCTV footage has been examined in a bid to find the person responsible, as well as asking other fans to come forward to name and shame.

The good news is that an incident like this makes such big news because it is so rare, unlike the problems experienced in the 1970s in England and in the present day at matches in certain other European countries.
