Football thug jailed for attack

Have your say

A FOOTBALL fan has been jailed and given a six year banning order after he assaulted another supporter after a Chesterfield match.

Darren Wheeler, 43, of Clifford Street, Shrewsbury, was one of a trio who attacked a 45-year-old in the car park of the B2net stadium following the Spireites v Shrewsbury clash in October 2010. Their victim suffered a broken nose and damage to his eye socket.

Wheeler denied GBH but was found guilty and jailed for 15 months.
