A PALACE fan was assaulted by two men during a fight at a pub near Dover Athletic's ground after yesterday's FA Cup win.

Kent Police was alerted by security staff at The Cricketers pub, in Crabble Avenue, at around 3.15pm to reports a 34-year-old man from Croydon had been assaulted by two men.

Reports on social media suggest the victim was a Palace fan.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "Witnesses report they saw the man being punched in the face. He fell to the ground and was kicked in the head.

"He told police he did not wish to make a statement or allegation. He also declined medical treatment."

One of the offenders is described as being a white unshaven man of stocky build aged between 30 and 40, 5ft 10in tall wearing a blue jumper and jeans.

The police spokesman added: "He and the other offender were with a group of women. The description was circulated but the offenders were not found."

An ambulance spokesman said crews were called to the pub, near Whites' home ground, at 2.45pm and again at 3.15pm. Both calls are believed to relate to the same incident.

Darren Bough, manager of The Cricketers, told the Dover Express two men involved in the fight had fallen through the bar hatch and ended up on top of each other.

He added: "Apart from that incident it was a great atmosphere at the pub all day. The Palace fans were all very well behaved."

Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 101, quoting crime reference ZY/424/15.

Palace won the game, which kicked-off at at 1pm, 4-0.
