Three Doncaster Rovers fans have each been banned from attending any matches for three years for their involvement in a violent incident that resulted in a man being knocked unconscious.

Ian Shrewsbury, 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.

The trouble broke out after a Rovers match against Tranmere Rovers on April 6 last year, when disorder ensued outside the Paris Gate pub on St Sepulchre Gate, at around 7pm.

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

Slaven was sentenced to 40 hours’ community service, £100 costs, and a £60 victim surcharge and Shrewbury 100 hours’ community service, £100 costs and £60 victim surcharge.

Tetley was fined £140, £100 costs and £20 victim surcharge and Slater was fined £50 and £20 costs.
