The chief executive of a non-league football club was arrested during an away match .

Carolyn Still (29), pictured, was held for using threatening words and behaviour during Mansfield Town's Blue Square Bet Premier play-off semi-final against York City on Wednesday night. It is understood she received a caution for her behaviour in Grosvenor Terrace, next to York's Bootham Crescent stadium.

She became the youngest chief executive in English football when she was appointed by Mansfield last September.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: "She was given an adult caution before being released." During the eventful game Mansfield held York to a 1-1 draw. John Radford, chairman of Mansfield Town, said in a statement on his Facebook page that the incident had been "blown totally out of proportion".
