Four for trial over 'disorder' at Dundee United match

Four men are to stand trial accused of trying to incite violence with rival football fans on the day of a match between Dundee United and Aberdeen.

Cameron Healy, Lemmy Milne, Alexander Middleton and Grant Fender deny charges of "forming part of a disorderly crowd and repeatedly attempting to engage in violence with rival fans" in December.

The men will stand trial at Dundee Sheriff Court in July.

They have been banned from attending Dundee United matches while on bail.

Mr Healy, 18, Mr Milne, 17, Mr Middleton, 41, and Mr Fender, 29, are also barred from attending any matches involving Dundee FC.

All four are accused of being involved in incidents in Main Street and Church Street on 13 December, while Mr Fender and Mr Milne are also charged with being involved in a further incident on Union Street.

The charges, brought under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act, allege that then men "engaged in behaviour that is likely or would be likely to incite public disorder by forming part of a disorderly crowd and repeatedly attempting to engage in violence with rival fans".

Aberdeen won the SPFL Premiership clash 2-0.
