Four charged after football disorder - 20/08/2011

Source : http://www.northumbria.police.uk/news_and_events/media_centre/news_releases/details.asp?id=47062

Northumbria Police has arrested four people suspected of being involved in football disorder last month.

They are believed to have been among supporters who invaded the pitch and brawled during a pre-season friendly between Newcastle and Darlington on July 15.

A joint operation between Durham and Northumbria police forces was set up to try and identify those involved in the disorder at the Northern Echo stadium.

Three men, aged 23, 20, 20 and a 17-year-old male youth were arrested at addresses in North Shields, Gateshead and South Shields last night and today.

They were arrested for offences including provocation of violence and going into the playing area and are currently being questioned by police.

Northumbria Police Chief Superintendent Steve Neill said: “We will continue to come down hard on the small minority who ruin things for the real football fans who just want to enjoy the game.

“These arrests should send out a clear message to anyone thinking of getting involved in violence or disorder at today’s derby that they should stay at home.

“Even if we don’t arrest you on the day, you can rest assured that you will be on our radar and we will catch up with you.

“Anyone intent on causing trouble faces arrest, prosecution and being banned from future matches.”

Sunderland AFC - Newcastle United - 20/08/2011

Source : Sunday Sun + Sunderlandecho.com

Police praise fans for Derby Day behaviour

POLICE arrested 21 football fans during derby day yesterday... but hailed their operation a success.
Hundreds of extra officers were drafted in to stamp out disorder when Sunderland met Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light.
The same fixture last season was marred when violence broke out inside and outside the ground, and a total of 33 fans were arrested in connection with the fracas.
This time, however, 21 fans were arrested for low-level offences – mainly drunkenness or possessing alcohol in a sports ground.
After the game, which the Magpies won 1-0, two missiles were thrown at police outside the ground.
But officers, dressed in riot gear and supported by the mounted and dog sections quickly dispersed fans.
A top Northumbria Police officer told the Sunday Sun they had been determined not to see a repeat of the levels of violence seen in January.
Chief Supt Steve Neill said they had reduced the number of tickets available to Newcastle fans after rival supporters hurled seats at each other during the earlier clash.
Outside the ground last season two police officers were injured in the clashes, while four police vans were targeted in a tense stand-off with hundreds of supporters.
Chief Supt Steve Neill said: “We didn’t want to see a repeat of January so a reduced ticket allocation meant we could have more distance between the sets of supporters.
“After the game there was a bit of disorder in the same area as in January. A couple of missiles were thrown at police.
“But we were able to snuff out the trouble very quickly.

“The operation has been very successful. There hasn’t been any significant trouble.
“Twenty one arrests out of a capacity crowd is still low.
“Public safety is always our number one priority during any football match and this means any individual or groups of people who pose a risk to public safety will be dealt with promptly by police, as they were today.
“The policing operation went very smoothly and I would like to commend the actions and professionalism of all the officers. I’d also like to thank the stewards and both clubs.”
Before the game, fans, including a tattooed and bare chested Newcastle fan, were in high spirits as the 48,000 capacity crowd filtered into the stadium.
County Durham born cricketer Paul Collingwood, a Sunderland fan, was at the game while the Black Cats American owner Ellis Short joined Chairman Niall Quinn in the stands.
Travelling Newcastle fans were sent into raptures when defender Ryan Taylor curled in a freekick in the second half. Taylor was mobbed by his teammates as they celebrated in front of their supporters.
Toon fans celebrated deep into the night, with packed pubs across Newcastle.
Celeb fans got in on the act. England cricket hero - and Magpies fanatic - Graeme Swann tweeted: “I'm not Nostradamus, but I predict a pretty lively Newcastle city centre tonight. Howay the lads”.
After the match a cordon barrier system was used to help minimise any potential conflict between rival fans and Newcastle fans were held back for a short while after the final whistle while home fans dispersed.
Extra trains were also running on the Metro system to take Newcastle fans away from Wearside.
Chief Supt Neill added: “The cordon system was a very effective tactic in ensuring that all fans reached and left the stadium safely.
“I’d like to thank the Newcastle fans for their patience after the game when they were held back for a short while.”
He added that the operation would continue into Sunday throughout the force area in case trouble flared up.

Mexico: Santos - Morelia - 20/08/2011

Source : 101greatgoals.com

Match suspended due to gun shots

There were crazy scenes in Mexico on Saturday as the Santos-Morelia Premier Division match was suspended after just 18 minutes as gun shots were heard from outside the stadium.

As soon as the shots rang out in Torreon, the players ran for cover and fans attempted to take refuge. No one in the stadium was hurt.

According to subsequent reports gunmen had opened fire on security forces at a checkpoint outside the stadium, one policeman was injured.

After the match was suspended, Santos chairman Alejandro Irarragorri announced on the pitch: “In the Santos club, we feel bad for the time in which we are living. It is evident that the game will be suspended. You can be assured that we will try to control these situations. We are sorry for Morelia, the referees and those who are visiting us from elsewhere.”

The violence has been put down to drug-related crime in northern Mexico but is the first time a football match has been halted in connection with it.

Swindon Town - Oxford United - 21/08/2011

Source : Swindonadvertiser.co.uk

12 arrests at football clash

A HEAVY police presence at yesterday’s crunch derby with Oxford United ensured that temperatures did not boil over between fans.

Only 12 arrests were made throughout the day as more than 100 police officers and eight dogs plus officers on horses helped to keep the rival fans apart. There was a strong police presence around the County Ground and the town centre from early yesterday.

Hundreds of Oxford United fans were escorted from the train station to the Merlin Pub, which the police had picked as a designated pub for visiting fans.

A small amount of trouble started before the game when the police were escorting the away fans from the pub to the ground, with both sets of fans goading each other and the police making a blockade between.

The game passed fairly peacefully with only one real incident after the first Oxford goal, when an away fan made it into the Arkells Stand and started celebrating. He was escorted out of the ground by stadium stewards.

After the game the police managed to escort the travelling fans back to the station along Fleming Way. Despite a number of Swindon fans attempting to start trouble, officers managed to any problems.

There were times when the police numbers were stretched throughout the day but according to Chief Inspector Nick Ashley, who was the match day co-ordinator, the operation went as well as had been planned.

He said: “There were twelve arrested for public disorder and drunkenness – the type of things you would expect from a match like this.

“The whole aim of the operation was about public safety. With a game of this kind which was the highest risk category for us you are always going to get trouble and our job was about minimising the impact which I think we did well.

“I know there were some incidents down residential areas but when you have to get four to five hundred Oxford fans away from the ground to the station you are going to go through residential areas – but I hope we kept the disruption to a minimum.”

Aston Villa fan banned after Carling Cup pitch invasion at Birmingham City - 22/08/2011

Source : Birmingham Mail

A FOOTBALL coach who hurled a seat at police during a huge pitch invasion during a Birmingham City v Aston Villa derby match has been sent to a young offenders’ institution for ten months.

Recorder Miss Abigail Nixon told 18-year-old Villa fan Jordan Powell: “You should know better than most that your behaviour cannot be tolerated.

“In effect you used a weapon that day. You ripped a chair out of the stands and threw it with force.

“It is only good fortune that the chair did not either hit a member of the public, innocent or otherwise, or a police officer. Somebody could have been seriously injured.”

The judge said she had taken into account Powell’s previous good character and the possibility that he might lose his job.

Powell, of Overton Drive, Water Orton, Solihull, who had previously admitted violent disorder, was also made the subject of a six-year footballing ban.

Graham Henson, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said the invasion occurred at the end of a Carling Cup match at between Birmingham and Villa St Andrews on December 1 last year.

It involved hundreds of fans who were in an “extremely agitated and aggressive state”.

An officer, he said, described chairs being thrown by both sets of supporters onto the pitch and that the situation was “incredibly violent and volatile”. He said distress was being caused to innocent supporters who had simply gone to watch a football match.

Mr Henson said that Powell had been seen to pick up a seat and throw it, the chair landing just a few feet from a police cordon.

He said later an officer viewing CCTV footage of Villa supporters recognised Powell because of his distinctive clothing.

Powell, when interviewed, said he was upset because Villa had lost and that his anger got the better of him. He said that Birmingham City fans had been goading Villa supporters and admitted also breaking the back of another seat.

Police investigate violence after Southampton's win over Millwall

POLICE are today studying CCTV footage following the crowd trouble at Southampton’s home match against Millwall on Saturday.

A police officer was among those hurt when fights broke out in the St Mary’s stadium car park after the final whistle.

Objects were hurled by both sets of supporters during the ugly scenes in the stadium’s north car park, as police and stewards moved in to separate the brawling fans.

The Daily Echo understands the officer, who was hit in the eye by a missile, was not seriously injured in the crowd trouble, which spilled into Britannia Road.

Police and stewards were forced to close off part of the street after the game because of the problems, although it was reopened by about 5.15pm.

Daily Echo reporter Gordon Simpson, who was caught up in the trouble outside the ground, said: “The Millwall fans going over the footbridge towards the train station started shouting and spitting, goading the Saints fans.

“Both sets of fans were throwing stuff at each other.

“One guy picked up a battery and threw it into the Saints fans, and it hit me in the ribs.

“One of the Saints fans picked it up and threw it straight back.

“It wasn’t as bad as the violence at the Pompey game, but if you’d had young kids with you, you would have been pretty worried for their safety.

“The police did a pretty good job keeping the fans apart in the car park though and subdued the situation well,” he added.

“But that was only around the ground. I don’t know what happened down near the train station.”

The confrontations followed a minor incident that had threatened to flare up inside the stadium during the nPower Championship match, which Southampton won 1-0.

About 20 Millwall fans attempted to scale the segregation netting in the Northam Stand, which is used to separate the home and away supporters, after Guly do Prado scored the only goal of the game in the first half.

Police and stewards swooped quickly to prevent serious altercations developing on that occasion, although eyewitnesses said a Millwall fan fell down the steps attempting to scale the netting, before being wheeled off on a stretcher.

However, no serious injuries were reported in the violence that followed the match.

Arrests made following violence at Southampton v Millwall

POLICE have made several arrests following the violence that marred Southampton’s home match against Millwall on Saturday.

A police officer was injured when rival fans clashed after the final whistle.

Trouble flared in the north car park at St Mary’s stadium, then spilled in Britannia Road. As previously reported, a police officer was left with an injured eye after an object was thrown at him.

The confrontation followed a minor incident that had threatened to flare up during the match, which Southampton won 1-0, in which Millwall fans attempted to climb over the segregation netting.

Last night police confirmed that some arrests had been made but they continued to appeal for witnesses to come forward to help identify the trouble makers.

Supt Steve France-Sergeant said: “Anyone identified as being part of these criminal acts from CCTV and witness statements will be arrested in due course.”

Rapid Vienna - Austria Vienna - 21/08/2011

Source : Austriantimes.at

Austria Vienna’s 3-0 victory came only weeks after around 200 Rapid hooligans stormed the pitch in the last Vienna derby of the 2010/2011 season. The rioters felt urged to show their disagreement with club officials’ transfer decisions and occurrences of the way the match itself as Austria Vienna led 2-0 after less than half an hour.

Police examined surveillance camera material of the scandal for weeks to help prosecutors identify and then ban the hooligans from pitches across the country. The Bundesliga penalty committee eventually decided to ban 32 offenders from soccer grounds for two years. Thirty hooligans were ordered to stay away from matches in the whole country for one year. Critics have claimed the offenders will find loopholes to get inside stadiums nevertheless due to allegedly lax security checks and identification checks at entrances.

The pitch invasion, which happened in May, started a public debate over safety at football stadiums. Politicians and football fan culture experts are at odds over whether hooligans were facing strict enough consequences in Austria.

Rapid President Rudolf Edlinger initially promised to ensure none of those who entered the pitch during the derby will ever be allowed to visit a Rapid home match ever again in their lives. The ex-Social Democratic (SPÖ) finance minister eventually realised the Austrian legal system would make it hard to speak out such a harsh sentence.

Club officials and Bundesliga bosses agreed the scandal-hit match was the final derby hosted by Rapid to take place at their home ground, the Gerhard Hanappi Stadium. Police experience fewer difficulties in taking action against lawbreaking visitors of matches at the Ernst Happel Stadium due to the track and field area which separates its stands and the pitch. Rapid may be fined as organisers of yesterday’s match for inadequate safety preparations as Austria Vienna fans managed to smuggle flares inside which they enlightened during the game.

Luton Town fans in court for football violence trial - 23/08/2011

Source : BBC News

Three men have gone on trial at Luton Crown Court accused of taking part in violence at a football match between Luton Town and York City in May 2010.

Jamie Sales, 26, of Russet Way, Dunstable, and Michael Howe, 44, of Dellfield, St Albans, deny affray inside the club's Kenilworth Road ground.

However Mr Howe has admitted a charge of affray outside the ground.

Gary Booth, 40, of Kinross Crescent, Luton denies affray outside the ground.

A fourth man, Scott Barker, 30, of Cutenhoe Road, Luton, was cleared of affray before the trial began when the prosecution offered no evidence against him.

The jury of nine men and three woman has been shown CCTV footage of Luton fans, whose club had lost the chance of promotion to the Football League, invading the pitch and hurling objects and abuse at the opposing fans and players.

Further crowd unrest outside the ground was also caught on camera, and showed people raiding a corner shop and throwing brooms, mops and other items at police.

'Aggressive atmosphere'
Prosecutor Claudette Elliott told the jury the match was played at Kenilworth Road on 3 May last year.

"It was a very important match to both sides. The winner would go through to the play-offs at Wembley and possible promotion," she said.

"This was a second leg match and Luton were losing 1-0 on aggregate at the start of the game.

"Unsurprisingly the atmosphere was aggressive and in the second half York City scored and the tension heightened and police feared a pitch invasion.

"Police and stewards formed lines to prevent the pitch being invaded but after the final whistle Luton supporters tried to get through the lines while York City supporters were celebrating on the pitch.

"Even experienced stewards and police officers admitted they were afraid by the situation."

She said Mr Howe claimed that inside the stadium he was just singing and dancing and Mr Sales said he was being pushed backwards and forwards in the crowd.

But Miss Elliott claimed the CCTV footage showed both men throwing items from the Luton end.

Top Dinamo official detained after Euro brawl

Dinamo Zagreb's top executive was detained overnight after a brawl with police following the team's victory over Swedish side Malmo in the UEFA Champions League play-off first leg, police and media said Thursday.
"A 52-year-old man was put under criminal investigation for preventing police from performing their duties," police said in a statement, without naming the suspect.
But local media reported the detained was Dinamo Zagreb's top executive Zdravko Mamic who himself has also protested against the "shameful behaviour" of police in a statement published on the team's website.
"I just protested and asked a policeman (...) to leave the supporters who rushed to the field to celebrate (Dinamo) victory and not to arrest them, because that night was reserved for our celebrations," Mamic said in a statement.
Mamic's lawyer said his client was released from detention on Thursday afternoon.
Police said Memic prevented police from arresting two Dinamo supporters who had run onto the pitch after the match.
Local media published a photo of Mamic being taken away by the police.
Mamic has held a number of posts in Dinamo's management since 2000.
But he has a reputation for being volatile and has several clashes in the past particularly with journalists.
In June 2008, a local court ordered him to pay a 7,000-euro fine for "grossly insulting" one journalist in public.

Season 11/12 - August - Page 3 Itnq

Police in Greece have come under fire from supporters of a local football team after their club was relegated.

Fans are angry after Olympiakos Volos was thrown out of the Greek Super League along with Kavala and demoted to division four, over match-fixing allegations.

More than eighty people have been charged, with lifetime bans from football handed out to the men in charge of both clubs.

Trouble flared after more than 1500 supporters held a protest march through Volos.

Some set fires in the streets and started smashing the windows of local shops and businesses.

Protesters then turned on police, throwing rocks, sticks and petrol bombs, with police replying with tear gas.

Two people were slightly injured by rocks.

Fifteen people have been arrested.

Exeter City - Liverpool FC - Carling Cup - 24/08/2011

Source : BBC News

Exeter v Liverpool police operation hailed a success

An operation to prevent trouble at the Exeter City v Liverpool match in Devon, has been hailed a success by police.

There was a 9,000-strong crowd at St James Park in Exeter for the sold-out Carling Cup match, which Liverpool won 1-3.

Devon and Cornwall Police said there were three arrests and six people were removed from the ground.

The force faces another big match next week when Exeter host arch-rivals Plymouth Argyle on 30 August.

'Lively but peaceful'

Extra police were on duty in and around the ground for the Exeter-Liverpool game on Wednesday , warning they would "come down hard" on any troublemakers.

There were two arrests inside the ground - one for allegedly being drunk and one allegation of an assault. The arrest outside the ground was for suspected drug offences, the force said.

Police match commander Supt Chris Singer said he was "very happy overall with the behaviour of the fans".

He said: "This was a lively but peaceful match that will be remembered for the right reasons."

On 30 August Exeter take on Plymouth in the Johnson Paint Trophy.

Police are preparing a large security operation after more than 20 people were arrested when violence broke out between fans of the two clubs at a match in Plymouth in November.

Police said any trouble at the game would be "dealt with robustly".

Troublemakers face a football banning order of up to 10 years, officers added.

UK : Final East Lancashire derby day hooligans jailed - 25/08/2011

Source : Burnleycitizen.co.uk

THE final remaining hooligans have been jailed for trying to cause trouble after Burnley's Premier League match against Blackburn.

Peter Bulcock, 49, of Quedgeley in Gloucestershire, and Steven Gornall, 49, of Steeton in West Yorkshire, had been on a stag do in Burnley and travelled to Blackburn to clash with rival supporters.

The pair had been celebrating the upcoming marriage of Gornall’s 22-year-old son Joshua in October 2009 but went with other would-be ‘Suicide Squad’ yobs for a fight close to The Station pub in Blackburn’s Cherry Tree district.

The Gornalls were previously banned from Turf Moor and all football grounds after being involved in a mob attack on Arsenal fans following an FA Cup tie in January 2008.

Judge Graham Knowles QC, at Preston Crown Court, jailed Bulcock for 23 months and Gornall for 26 months over the latest violence, after they were convicted of conspiracy to commit violent disorder.

The judge also issued Bulcock with an eight-year football banning order and a fresh 10-year ban for Gornall.

An earlier hearing saw Joshua Gornall, of Eastburn, West Yorkshire, jailed for 27 months, and issued with an eight-year banning order, for his role in the same incident.

Assistant chief constable Andy Cooke branded the hooligans ‘half-wits’ and ‘throwbacks’ when some of the hooligans were previously jailed.

Last January the bulk of those involved in the clash were dealt with. Jail sentences totalling 32 years were handed out.

Ringleaders Andrew Porter and Paul Hartley, who co-ordinated the violence via mobile phones, were sent to prison for five and four years respectively.

Panathinaikos - Maccabi Tel Aviv - 25/08/2011

Violence briefly halts Panathinaikos-Maccabi game

Crowd violence has temporarily interrupted the Panathinaikos-Maccabi Tel Aviv match in the Europa League playoffs.

The game was stopped after just five minutes on Thursday after riot police fired tear gas to break up a fight, filling the stands with noxious fumes. No injuries or arrests have been reported, and the game resumed after about half an hour.

Maccabi won the first leg 3-0.

Greek football is often marred by crowd violence, which successive governments have pledged to stop — to little avail.

Switzerland: Police release shocking hooligan videos - 26/08/2011

Source : TheLocal.ch

Zürich police have released two previously unseen videos showing violent FC Basel fans attacking riot police in a coordinated offensive outside Zürich-Letzigrund stadium in May.

The wildly aggressive scenes were recorded on May 11th before a match between the FC Zürich and FC Basel football teams in Zürich.

One video shows how FC Basel supporters battered security forces at the stadium.

The hooligans rounded on the police, attacking them with everything they could get their hands on. Rubbish bins, benches, tables, security fences and fire crackers flew through the air, some aimed from balconies.

The rioters were seemingly unperturbed by the severe injuries caused to security guards and supporters who were not involved in the violence, the Tages Anzeiger newspaper reported.

At one point, the video shows a fan getting hit in the head with a heavy object. He immediately falls unconscious.

The frenzied mob resisted tear gas, and could only be brought under control with great difficulty.

A second video shows how a section of the Basel fans were already aggressive and prepared for violence when they got off the train in Zürich. Minutes later, they stormed the stadium in their hundreds.

Several catering stands in the stadium were looted for money, food and drinks. At the entrances, electronic devices were broken, toilets were damaged, sinks ripped off walls, and mirrors smashed.

Marco Cortesi, spokesman for the Zürich police, commented on the violent images on the Swiss television programme “Rundschau“.

“Had we intervened outside [the stadium area], the situation could have escalated and triggered unimaginable street fights,“ he said.

About 10 people were injured in the riots and the cost of the damage was almost 200,000 francs ($250,000), according to Blick newspaper.

Last Monday, Zürich police also published pictures of 16 men involved in the riots. Five hooligans have already been identified and further enquiries are being made. They will be charged with breach of the peace, damage to property and theft.

Combi-tickets, chartered trains and identity controls are among the measures that have been discussed by the government and the Swiss Football Association as ways of preventing football violence in future.

The president of the Swiss Football Association, Peter Guilléron, told Swiss television programme “Rundshau” he was appalled by the images but thinks that the introduction of ID checks for football supporters may be the wrong approach.

“I think when politicians recommend such measures, it does not lead to an improved climate,” he said.
