QPR and Leyton Orient fans charged with fighting outside pub



QPR and Leyton Orient fans have both been charged with violent conduct after they both clashed outside a City of London pub at the start of the 2015/16 season, reports the IB Times.


The brawl happened outside the Woodins Shades after both sides opening fixtures on August 8th 2015.

There were five men involved aged 18-30 and City of London police were called to the pub in Middlesex Street, at 7.45pm on August 8th to reports of a fight.

There were bottles and glasses being thrown around and one Leyton Orient supporter was struck by one of the bottles causing a cut to the head and was taken to a London hospital.

A member of the public was also injured by some of the flying glass after the window of the Woodins Shades was smashed.

Queens Park Rangers spokesman said: “The club is disappointed to learn of these arrests. We do not condone this type of behaviour from any of our supporters – and we won’t accept or associate ourselves with those who deem this type of behaviour to be acceptable. We will work alongside our colleagues at the City of London Police in offering any available assistance with the case.”

Meanwhile on the pitch, QPR sit in 11th place in the Sky Bet Championship, having amassed 55 points from 41 league games – whilst, Orient sit in 11th place in Sky Bet League Two.
