A-League hooligans shown throwing trolleys, buckets

A soccer hooligan who threw a trolley during a violent pitch invasion at an A-League football match is one of 18 people police are still hunting for from the violence in Melbourne at the weekend.

Police charged 10 more people overnight as fresh images and footage were released of the group that stormed the pitch when Melbourne Victory played Melbourne City at AAMI Stadium on Saturday.

One man can be seen throwing a hand trolley on the pitch, while another threw buckets and other debris onto the field.

Operation Astute has now charged 13 people over the violence that exploded at the match, and Football Australia on Tuesday issued the first two, of what it expects to be many, life bans over the incident.

The governing body gave Melbourne Victory until 9am Wednesday to show it should not face serious sanctions over the crowd behaviour.

Those charged include four people who were allegedly behind serious assaults on the field and one who threw a flare at a cameraman.
