Pair banned for five years after trouble during Shrewsbury Town v Wolves match
Two men from Shrewsbury have been banned from football matches for five years after trouble flared following a Shrewsbury Town game in January.
Yesterday Neil Jones, 49, of Sundorne Road in Shrewsbury appeared at Telford Magistrates Court 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 after the FA cup fixture between Shrewsbury Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers on January 26.
