Three year football banning order

A 23-year-old man has been given football banning order following drunk and disorderly behaviour outside the Lincoln City’s LNER Stadium.

The incident, which continued onto the High Street outside the Shakespeare public house, happened following the Lincoln City vs Sunderland EFL1 play-off semi-final on Wednesday 19th May.

Matthew Mark Coe, of Broughton Gardens in Lincoln, appeared at Lincoln District Magistrates Court on Monday 7th June where he was found guilty of being Drunk and Disorderly.

His actions and subsequent conviction led to the court issuing him with a three year Football Banning Order and £372 fine. The banning order prohibits him from attending any regulated football match played in the UK, including all Lincoln City fixtures and any England team fixtures in the UK and abroad. 

PC Lee Charlesworth of Lincolnshire Football Policing Unit  said: "This was unacceptable behaviour which has resulted in him losing his right to attend matches. The vast majority of Lincoln City fans attend matches to support the team and show their love of the game. His actions are very much in the minority, but even so they will not be tolerated on matchday.

"Fans who attend Lincoln City football matches, not to mention those that live and work in the area, should be able to go about their business without fear of intimidation, distress or alarm. We will continue to work closely with the Club to ensure matchday is a safe and enjoyable environment for those fans who attend to enjoy their day."
