A man has been handed a three-year football banning order after being found with smoke bombs before a Peterborough United match last month.
Jason Spraggs, 25, of Oxford, was found in possession of four smoke bombs in Peterborough city centre shortly after one had been thrown at the home fans before Peterborough United’s home clash with Oxford United on Saturday September 30.
He was sentenced to the banning order and ordered to pay a fine of £225 yesterday (October 25) at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court.
He must also surrender his passport when the England national team travel abroad.
The banning order prevents him from attending any football match in the UK and visiting either Oxford’s or Wycombe’s town centres when they are playing a home fixture.

PC Mark Wood said: “Smoke bombs can cause considerable problems to a person’s breathing, particularly those with asthma or other breathing difficulties.
“There is also a potential fire hazard with these devices, meaning they pose a threat to the safety of those in its immediate proximity.”
