Foot­ball fan banned from matches af­ter FA cup trou­ble

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A Peter­bor­ough foot­ball fan who was banned from watch­ing matches at sta­di­ums three years ago has had an­other ban­ning or­der im­posed af­ter get­ting in­volved in trou­ble af­ter an FA Cup tie.

Nathan Alexan­der of Mor­gan Close, Yax­ley, Peter­bor­ough was given a three year foot­ball ban­ning or­der in Septem­ber 2015 af­ter ‘a num­ber of anti-so­cial in­ci­dents’ at foot­ball matches over a pe­riod of two years.

On Tues­day (Novem­ber 6) he was given a fur­ther four year ban.

A spokesman for Cam­bridgeshire po­lice said: “In early 2018 he be­came in­volved in a foot­ball re­lated dis­or­der within Peter­bor­ough town cen­tre. This was af­ter the Peter­bor­ough vs Le­ices­ter fix­ture on 27 Jan­uary. Due to this in­ci­dent and his pre­vi­ous ban he was re­turned to the court for a new ap­pli­ca­tion. The court have now given him a Foot­ball Ban­ning Or­der for four years start­ing on Tues­day.”

In the FA Cup match, Le­ices­ter won 5-1.

Fol­low­ing his first ban in 2015, PC Mark Wood said: “Alexan­der’s con­vic­tion fol­lows a num­ber of in­ci­dents of anti-so­cial and dis­or­derly con­duct while at­tend­ing foot­ball games over the last two years. There were sev­eral in­ci­dents where he had at­tempted to in­sti­gate dis­or­der with gen­uine op­po­si­tion fans who were leav­ing the sta­dium af­ter a game.”

The or­der pre­vents him from at­tend­ing any Peter­bor­ough United home or away games, as well as any other foot­ball matches within the UK.
