A football supporter has received a football banning order for letting off a smoke canister in Alfreton.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Wednesday, May 28, how Shaun Millward, 31, of Belgrave Road, Macclesfield, pleaded guilty to being in possession of a smoke canister at a designated sporting event.

Police explained that Millward had attended the Alfreton Town v Macclesfield match on April 26, at The Impact Arena, and was seen to ignite and throw a smoke canister in the ground. He received a 12 month community order with 100 hours unpaid work, and a three-year football banning order and he was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge. PC Roger Brown, Football Intelligence Officer for Alfreton Town, said: “There has been a significant increase in the use of pyrotechnics at football matches. It is illegal and dangerous and anyone caught will be arrested and put before the courts.”
