By Lucy Todman | Wolverhampton | Crime | Published:

Two men have been banned from football matches for five years after trouble flared following a Wolves game in January.

Neil Jones and Robert Jones

Neil Jones, 49, of Sundorne Road in Shrewsbury, appeared at Telford Magistrates Court yesterday where he was given a five-year football banning order after he was convicted of a Section 4 public order offence.

The offence took place outside the Albion Vaults pub in the town centre after the FA cup game between Shrewsbury Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 26.

Jones received a 12-week sentence suspended for 12 months and £735 fine for the public order offence.

Robert Jones, 47, of Monkmoor Road in Shrewsbury also received a five-year football banning order at Telford Magistrates Court after he was convicted for battery after the match. He was fined £485.

Eight people have now been convicted and given football banning orders over the trouble, meaning they cannot attend a football match and if they do they face arrest.

The football banning orders range from between three to five years with a total of 32 years between them.
