They were detained when trouble flared outside The Walks, after King’s Lynn were defeated 2-1 by Slough in Monday’s Southern Premier Division play-off final.

There were scuffles between rival fans as supporters left the ground.

Police said a man in his 40s and a man in his 60s, both from Lynn had been arrested.

Both have now been bailed until Monday, June 4, while enquries continue.

Monday’s game, with a gate of almost 3,000, was the biggest at the Lynn ground for many years.

The Linnets, who finished second in the table, needed to win to clinch promotion.

They went ahead in the 27th minute but Slough equalised before half time and added another in the second half to dash the West Norfolk side’s hopes of going up.
