A 20-YEAR-OLD man has been banned from attending football matches for three years over his part in crowd trouble at the game between Barnsley and Leeds last month.

The banning order prevents him from attending any home or away Barnsley  match for three years, as well as any other regulated football match.

Dear WAB

Just asking, why is this story up for comment?

It's not a matter of opinion, is it? The bloke got sentenced. What else is there to say, a few people might take the p.ss out of his name, so what, it's not news or a debate.
