Man from Houghton Regis handed three year football ban

19 Feb 2018

A man from Houghton Regis has been handed a court order banning him from football matches in the United Kingdom, as we continue to clamp down on football related disorder and violence.

Lewis Webb, 19, from Houghton Regis, was made subject of the three year Football Banning Order following a hearing at Luton Magistrates’ Court today (Monday). The order bans Webb from attending any regulated football matches anywhere in the country for three years, and he is also prevented from travelling abroad during international friendlies, qualifications and tournaments.

PC Rob Brogna, Football Planning Intervention Officer for Bedfordshire Police said:  “Webb received the banning order for contributing towards anti-social behaviour and disorder over the past two football seasons.

“We will not tolerate those who use football matches as an excuse for violence and disorder whether at home or away matches.  Banning people like Webb from matches makes it safer for everyone to go to the football.  Families should be able to support their teams without fear of violence or intimidation.  This should serve as a warning to any else who thinks it is acceptable to inflict their anti-social behaviour on other, well behaved football fans.”
