A teenage football fan has been arrested after a goalkeeper was attacked in the closing stages of a match in England's fourth tier.

In Monday's game at Gillingham, Wycombe goalkeeper Jordan Archer was about to take a goal kick in stoppage time when the supporter entered the field and leapt toward him.

Later, Kent police in southern England announced that a "17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of assault".

Wycombe took the lead in the 85th minute to secure a 1-0 win at Gillingham.

This season, Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was attacked during a second-tier game by a Leeds fan, who was sentenced to jail for four months.
