BARNSLEY Football Club has issued banning orders to 25 supporters due to antisocial behaviour and public disorder at recent games.

The majority of the incidents occurred at the FA Cup tie last weekend away at Huddersfield Town.

A Barnsley FC spokesperson said: “Our message is clear.

“Antisocial and criminal behaviour is not tolerated in any form, in any venue, be it on public transport, in hospitality venues or stadiums.

“The club will continue to work alongside South Yorkshire Police to identify and support the prosecution of offending individuals.

“We are aware that the overwhelming majority of Reds are passionate, loyal and committed supporters who do not want the club’s name associating with these charges.

“As a result of this minority, the club will improve security measures both at Oakwell and away from home to help identify these people more efficiently.

“We will now also fund enhanced police and stewarding assistance for forthcoming fixtures.”
