A man has been banned from attending football matches for three years after shouting racist remarks shortly after Derby County’s match against Preston at Pride Park.
The court heard that Daniel Brady of Stanage Green, Derby also hit a man during the incident which occurred on Saturday, August 25. He was arrested by our specialist football officers.
Appearing at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates Court on Monday, the 21-year-old pleaded guilty to a racially aggravated public order offence.
As well as the three-year banning order, Brady was also handed a £250 fine and ordered to pay costs totalling £115.
Inspector Booth said: “In partnership with Derby County Football Club and other organisations, we have worked hard to ensure that match days are enjoyable for all fans.
“This conviction and banning order should remind people that we do not tolerate any instances of disorder at Derby County fixtures, or indeed any fixture in the country.
“This behaviour is certainly not typical of Derby’s fan-base and the racist nature of this incident makes it all the more unacceptable and disappointing.”
