A Spireites fan has been slapped with a football banning order.

David Field, 25, of Clay Lane, Clay Cross, pleaded guilty to a public order offence which took place at Barnsley train station in April this year.

Field was with a number of Spireites fans who had travelled to Barnsley for an away fixture.

He attended Barnsley magistrates court on Friday and received a four-year football banning order along with a fine.

PC Roger Brown, from Chesterfield Football Intelligence Team, said: “I hope that this banning order will act as a reminder to Chesterfield fans that away fixtures are also monitored by Derbyshire police.

“Mr Field will miss all regulated football for the next four years – this will include the Euro 2016 tournament in France.”
