A football fan has been handed a five-year banning order for racist abuse directed at players during Carlisle United's FA Cup tie with Everton.

Owen Newbury, 18, admitted racially aggravated harassment following Everton's first goal in the fourth round tie at Brunton Park in January.

Newbury, of Skinburness Drive, Silloth, was given a five-year banning order at Carlisle Magistrates' Court.

He was also ordered to carry out 140 hours of community service.
