Football fans to contest stadium countrywide ban
TWO football fans are to contest a nationwide order which bans them from every stadium in the country.
Cheshire Police applied to Macclesfield magistrates for the court to impose a football banning orders on Nathan Hulme, 19, and Jack Johnson, 22.
It follows Hulme and Johnson’s convictions for being drunk and disorderly on August 29, the same day as Macclesfield Town FC lost 2-1 to Chester FC at the Moss Rose ground.
The pair will appeal their ban alongside Lawrence Richard Carr, 22, who was convicted of using threatening or abusive words or behaviour at the game, as previously reported in the Express.
The trio appeared at South Cheshire Magistrates’ Court on October 15 and were bailed with conditions to appear at Macclesfield magistrates’ court on December 17 to contest the football banning order (FBO).
Hulme, of Hermitage Drive, Holmes Chapel, Carr, of Derwent Drive, Congleton, and Johnson, of Taylorson Street South, Salford Quays, are banned from UK football grounds or entering any area around a stadium where Macclesfield are playing, home or away, four hours before or after kick off.
