Did anyone get a good view of what happened? Looked like Red Faction fighting among themselves

Anyone see what was going on with that young lad who seemed to be wrestling with the stewards on the pitch near the North-East corner?

When was this? We are close to the front next to the corner flag and didn’t see a thing.
After the final whistle. Was a bit strange really. The stewards had him on the floor and seemed to be restraining him and then he seemed to be fighting with them when they stood him up.

I walked past this. He tried to get on the pitch and the stewards stopped him. Then a few people were arguing with the stewards saying to just let go him back over into the stands and that they were being too harsh. I didn't see what happened nest as we were past them by then.

Obviously they've been given the brief that everyone who encroaches onto the pitch is removed from the ground by stewards. But they did seem to be a little excessive in the way they dealt with him, and he seemed really young. I think putting him back into the stands would have been a better move. But rules are rules, and nobody should be trying to get onto the pitch.
