WORCESTER Raiders have confirmed that an internal investigation will be carried out after an incident involving opposing players following the Hellenic League Premier game with Pershore Town at Sixways. 

Multiple witnesses allege that Raiders' Isaac Cooper, who was sent-off late in the game that ended 3-3, head-butted Pershore's Alfie Bloomer in the bar area after the match.

Bloomer received treatment at the scene before being taken to hospital for further scans.
