TWO Burton men could be banned from attending football matches after they were allegedly involved in a total of 14 sport related disorder offences stretching over three years.
James Goodman, of Goodman Street, and Shane Timmins, 24, of Wyggeston Street, Horninglow, have already been issued with club banning letters relating to offences in 2011 and earlier this year.
Both men will appear at Burton Magistrates’ Court on August 27 after police applied for a football banning order.
The men are jointly accused of using anti-social behaviour, and abusive language while travelling on the Burton Albion coach to and from Aldershot, on November 1, 2011.
On December 2, 2012, they both were issued with fixed penalty notices after being abusive towards two police officers, and admitted to drinking all day while attending a Burton Albion FA Cup fixture at Crewe.
Finally, they both allegedly subjected a young Burton Albion fan to personal abuse on January 1 and 19, 2013 during matches.
Meanwhile, Goodman is individually charged with attempting to incite disorder during a League 2 fixture between Burton Albion and Oldham Athletic, on November 12, 2011, and being drunk and abusive to members of the public in High Street, Burton, following them in their car and smashing their windows, five days later, and was cautioned for criminal damage.
On Christmas Eve, 2011, police witnessed Goodman being drunk, argumentative and confrontational, at Tesco’s, Burton.
Meanwhile, Timmins was physically restrained during the infamous clash between the Brewers and Grimsby Town on May 8, 2010.
On November 19, 2011, Timmins allegedly squared up to a police officer in Burton, and on December 12, 2012, was restrained by door staff at Retros.
Then, on April 14, 2012, police spoke to him about his abusive language at an Albion match with Bristol Rovers, and was aggressive to the officer.
Finally, on August 11, 2012, at an Albion match against Sheffield United, Timmins was caught making signs of a sexual nature towards Sheffield United supporters.
