18 ‘Everton fans’ hunted by cops over horror face-slash attack that left fellow supporter scarred for life at Millwall FA Cup tie
COPS today released pictures of 18 “Everton fans” they are hunting over the horror face-slash attack which left a supporter scarred for life at the Millwall FA Cup game.
Everton fan Jay Burns said he “can’t look in the mirror” after he was knifed in the face before the fourth-round match on January 26.
Shocking footage showed two groups of rival yobs trading punches outside Surrey Quays station in South East London, just one mile from Millwall’s stadium.
Officers described the brawls before and after the game as “some of the worst football violence we have witnesses for some time”.
Jay posted a gory selfie of his five-inch wound – which left him with 20 stitches – online hours after the incident.
He said: “Absolutely devastated about me face.
“I can’t even look at me self in the mirror daft c*** award goes to me again.
“They’ve only gone and knocked me nice looking, I appreciate everyone’s messages.
“To all the Everton lads and everyone who has messaged me and the Liverpool lads who have messaged me, much appreciated.
“Everton till I die”.
The Metropolitan Police has now released photographs of 18 fans – believed to be supporters of the Merseyside club.
It comes just two weeks after cops released pictures of 12 men they believed are connected to the bloody brawl.

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson from the Met’s Public Order Investigation Team, said: “We are working closely with Merseyside Police to identify the individuals in these pictures, who we believe to be Everton fans and I would urge anyone who recognises an individual to get in touch.
“We had an excellent response from the public when we issued the first set of images two weeks ago and I would now like to appeal again for the public’s assistance in identifying these individuals, who we believe were involved in unacceptable disorder before, during and after the game.
“This was some of the worst football violence we have witnessed for some time, leaving one man with a life-changing injury to his face.”
