Four West Ham supporters have been issued with football banning orders at Leicester Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 30 October) after a violent disorder in October last year.
A number of people were involved in the disorder following Leicester City’s match against West Ham United on Saturday 27 October, 2018.
In February this year police launched an appeal for five men after a fight broke out minutes before the Leicester City FC owner died in a helicopter crash. The fans were involved in a brawl in Filbert Way, near to the junction with Burnmoor Street, at about 7.30pm on October 27 2018.
The men who pleaded guilty yesterday were all given nine months imprisonment, suspended for two years and three year football banning orders, which prohibits them from attending any West Ham United and England matches.
Those sentenced were from Harlow, Croydon, Hampshire and Leicester
A fifth man from Hornchurch pleaded guilty to affray in July and is due to be sentenced at a later date.
Each of those convicted will also receive life bans from West Ham United home and away games.
