Football fans admit affray at Luton Town ground

Three men have pleaded guilty to being involved in violence at a football ground in Bedfordshire.

Kieran Gavigan, 27, from Leighton Buzzard, pleaded guilty at Luton Crown Court to affray inside Luton Town FC ground on 3 May last year.

John Ruocco, 18, of Houghton Regis, and Ashley McChesney, 19, from Dunstable, pleaded guilty to affray outside the ground on Kenilworth Road.

The game was against York City. The men will be sentenced at a later date.

Ben Butler, 19, of Flitwick, and David Cremin, 23, from Luton, pleaded not guilty to being involved in an affray and they will stand trial on a date to be arranged.

All five were among 12 men aged between 18 and 43 arrested following violent scenes at Luton Town's game against York City.

Seven did not have any charges put to them and their hearing was adjourned until 14 March.

All the men are on bail with a condition not to attend any Luton Town games at home or away.
