Another two Isle men have been issued with football banning orders as part of a police clampdown following violence at a Scunthorpe United game.
Jamie Marsden, 29, of Trunk Road, Althorpe and Simon Stanley, 46, of North End, Keadby were both handed three year banning orders admitting using threatening words to provoke violence.
The men were arrested as part of Operation Feather launched after disruption at the Scunthorpe United v Swindon football match on Saturday April 27 in which fans entered the pitch and were also involved in some further disruption in the car park.
Detective Inspector James Fairgrieve, who is leading the Operation Feather investigation said: “The team of officers who have been working on Operation Feather would like to thank the media and members of the public for their assistance in helping us to identify a number of offenders in connection with this operation. We do still have a small number of people to identify so please if you know who they are then get in touch.
“The results at North Lincolnshire Magistrates court on Wednesday 17 July show that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and, it sends a clear message to those people who are intent on engaging in this type of behaviour, we will find you and we will bring you to justice.
“One person, who had breached his football banning order was handed a 10 year football banning order. This is the longest order that can be handed out for football related offences. The same person was also handed a four month custodial sentence. A pleasing result for us and for Scunthorpe United Football Club.”
Superintendent for police in North Lincolnshire Dave Hall added: “Police in North Lincolnshire work in partnership to ensure that those people who go to Glanford Park to watch football do so in a friendly and relaxed environment “
“The act(s) of these individuals are in total isolation to the overwhelming majority of people who watch Scunthorpe United when they play football all across the country and the results at court on Wednesday 17 July now means that these people can no longer spoil things for those who visit Glanford Park for the right reasons.
“We will continue to work with Scunthorpe United Football Club and the Local Safety Advisory Group to ensure that the matches are as safe and enjoyable as possible for those people who wish to go and watch the football.” Anyone with information about the trouble contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111
