Foul-mouthed soccer fans banned and fined

TWO CHESTERFIELD FC fans have been given three-year football banning orders to keep them away from games after using racist language towards a steward.

Trevor Laughton and Joanne Worrall admitted using racially aggravated language during the Spireites’ away game at Torquay on April 29.

They were each given three year Football Banning Orders at a hearing at Torquay Magistrates Court on Thursday, June 2.

Laughton, 45, and Worrall, 25, both of Derwent View, Matlock, were also fined £308 and £118 respectively.

PC Allan Guy, who attended the hearing, said: “This sort of abusive language will not be tolerated and has no place in this day and age.

“These bans should serve as a warning to others that we will come down hard on anyone involved in this kind of behaviour.”
