Trouble first broke out in Harborough Hill Working Men’s Club, Shaw Lane, Barnsley, before the game kicked off.

Thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused to the club, which had been designed for away fans.

After the 1-1 draw a large number of fans then clashed on Regents Street.

Police have issued photos of six men they want to trace. Officers believe several Hull fans travelled to South Yorkshire intent on causing mayhem.

Last month South Yorkshire Police arrested eight youths - aged 15 to 17 - in connection with the trouble.

Officers travelled to Hull to apprehend the suspects in a series of dawn raids.

All eight were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

The arrests were ordered before Barnsley FC travelled to Hull for the return match, in the hope it would send out a strong message that police are taking the violence seriously and do not want a repeat of any trouble.

Before the return fixture police in Hull warned fans intent on fighting or retribution to stay away from the town.

Anyone with information about the men pictured, or about the violence itself on Saturday October 30, should call South Yorkshire Police on 0114 220 2020 and ask for Barnsley Intelligence.

Crimestoppers can also be contacted on 0800 555 111.
