The four Sheffield Wednesday fans were in the White Lion pub on the Market Place when a fight broke out which involved punches, chairs and glasses being thrown.

Mark Harrison, 44, of Delves Road, Killamarsh, Sheffield who has previously received two banning orders, was given a 12 month jail sentence, suspended for two years.

They were given three-year football banning orders, banning them from Sheffield City Centre on match days and requiring them to hand in their passports whenever England play abroad.

Fields and Fisher must do 120 hours of unpaid work, Harrison was told to attend an offender behaviour programme and Marsden was given an order to help him with an alcohol problem. They will all be supervised by the probation service for 12 months and must all pay £120 costs and a £100 victim surcharge.
