Barnsley fan handed three-year ban for throwing SAUSAGE ROLL at steward during brawl at Southend
A BARNSLEY fan has been banned from football games for three years for throwing a SAUSAGE ROLL at a steward.
Curtis Horbury was supporting his team in a game away at Southend United in 2019.
But the 22-year-old got involved in a scuffle with security staff after incorrectly hearing that stewards had hit a disabled fan.
Stadium personnel were sent into the away end to try and stop supporters standing on the seats.
After an appeal, three men were identified for their part in the trouble, and have appeared at Basildon Crown Court.
Horbury admitted to throwing the sausage roll and, along with Kyle Swann, 20, Darren Kennett, 54, and his son Harvey Kennett, admitted affray.
They were all handed three-year bans and curfew orders.
Cameron Rose, 23, and Jonathan Senior, 28, were given four and one month curfews respectively after admitting to a section four public order offence.
Stewards were punched to the floor during the shocking altercation, as reported by the Echo.
Judge Samantha Leigh told Horbury: “You wrongly made yourself involved in the situation, you made full admissions that you shouldn’t have got involved.

“You also accepted that you threw the sausage roll at the stewards.”
Prosecuting, Ed Renvoize said: “There was distress not only for the stewards but also for the football supporters who were not engaging with them.”
All the Barnsley fans expressed their remorse for the trouble that started just before half-time of the football clash.
