Four Sheffield Wednesday fans have been banned from matches for three years after a fight at a pub.

Chairs and glasses were thrown in the fight involving the men at the White Lion pub in Ripley, Derbyshire.

The men had been in the pub ahead of Sheffield Wednesday playing an away match at Derby County last November.

Danny Fields, 31, of Angel Yard, Saltergate, Chesterfield, Jonathan Fisher, 29, of Middle Lane, Stannington, Sheffield and Lee Marsden, 38, of St Matthews Close, Renishaw, Sheffield were all given nine months in prison, suspended for two years.

Mark Harrison, 44, of Delves Road, Killamarsh, Sheffield - who has previously received two banning orders - was given a 12 month jail sentence, suspended for two years.

The group were all given three-year football banning orders, banning them from Sheffield City Centre on match days and requiring them to hand in their passports whenever England play abroad.

Fields and Fisher must do 120 hours of unpaid work, Harrison was told to attend an offender behaviour programme and Marsden was given an order to help him with an alcohol problem. They will all be supervised by the probation service for 12 months and must all pay £120 costs and a £100 victim surcharge.
