A Chesterfield FC supporter has been jailed and banned from attending matches for seven years for a fight during the recent Sheffield United match.

Steven Hill was arrested for a public order offence after a fight outside the Donkey Derby pub on the day of the match.

The incident took place during the second half of the League One clash between the teams on Saturday, October 4.

Hill, of Chiltern Court, Chesterfield, was charged with a public order offence and later pleaded guilty at Derby Crown Court.

He was sentenced to five months in prison, part of which was for breaching a suspended sentence for assault, which he received in 2013.

The 28-year-old was also given a seven-year football banning order, meaning he will not be able to attend any Chesterfield FC fixture in the UK. The order also bans him from the area around the Proact Stadium on match days. He must also surrender his passport whenever England’s international team play abroad.
