Ex Lincoln City goalkeeper Alan Marriott hit by 'brick' thrown through Woking dressing room window
Former Lincoln City favorite Alan Marriott narrowly escaped serious injury when he was allegedly hit by a brick while sitting in the Woking dressing room.
Marriott now plays for Mansfield Town and the club claim Marriott was hit on the back of the head when the brick was thrown through the team's dressing room window following Mansfield's 2-1 win at Woking on Wednesday evening.
However, Woking said the window was broken by a fan punching the glass and that no brick was thrown.
Marriott was not thought to be seriously hurt.
Mansfield boss Cox said: "A brick came through the window and hit Alan Marriott on the back of the head."
Mr Cox went to the window to see who the culprit was and saw a group of men, who spat at him and threw items such as coins.
Mr Cox and some team members then ran out of the dressing room to confront the men.
"It was a few mindless idiots," he said. "The people who do these sort of things need banning from the game.
"There has to be something done about it, otherwise a footballer, or somebody associated with football, is going to get seriously injured."
Woking said they were dealing with the incident internally. Operations director Peter Jordan said a season ticket holder would be banned from the club.
