Three Doncaster Rovers fans will have to keep away from the Keepmoat Stadium and other football grounds by court order.

Each has been banned from attending any professional football matches, including international tournaments, for three years as punishment for their involvement in a violent incident in which a man was knocked unconscious.

Ian Shrewsbury, aged 23, of High Street, Misterton; Patrick Slaven, 21, of Anchorage Lane, Sprotbrough; and Shaun Tetley, 33, of Hanbury Close, Balby, appeared before Doncaster magistrates, along with Andrew Slater, 38, of Wentworth Road, Wheatley, to be sentenced for public order offences.

Trouble flared after a Rovers match against Tranmere Rovers in League One on Saturday, April 6, last year, when disorder ensued outside the Paris Gate pub on St Sepulchre Gate.

The incident was captured on CCTV and Slaven was arrested at the scene. As a result of further inquiries by officers, Shrewsbury, Tetley and Slater were later identified and also arrested.

Slaven and Shrewsbury were sentenced to community service of 100 and 40 hours respectively, Tetley was fined £140, and Slater, who is not banned, was fined £50.
