A MAN has been banned from pubs in Swanwick and Alfreton for a year and was given a four-year Football Banning Order for threatening someone at a game.

Lee Woolis, 45, was arrested following a match between Alfreton Town and Lincoln on October 29 after he repeatedly threatened another fan in the car park while drunk.

Woolis, of Birchwood Road, Alfreton, was charged with a public order offence.

He was also fined £275 by magistrates in Chesterfield on Monday, April 2.

He was made the subject of a 12-month alcohol exclusion order and is now banned from 18 pubs and social clubs.

PC Roger Brown, Football Intelligence and Licensing Officer, said: “Derbyshire Constabulary will use all legislation necessary to deal with alcohol related disorder as robustly as possible.

“This will hopefully send a clear message that disorder of any kind will not be tolerated. Alfreton Town FC and Derbyshire Constabulary continue to work in partnership to prevent and detect football related disorder.”

Breaching an order is a criminal offence which could lead to a prison sentence.
