Three men in court over football disorder

Three men have appeared in court in connection with disorder at the Bristol City v Swansea football match in February.

Jeffrey Warren, 63, Alexander Wilkinson, 36, and Leigh Phillips, 52, were charged over their actions at the home game at Ashton Gate.

Warren, a builder from Litchard Terrace, Bridgend, Wales, admitted walking onto an area adjacent to the match and was banned from attending all UK matches for three years.

He told Bristol Magistrates Court he was "deeply ashamed" at what he had done and "didn't know what had happened".

Wilkinson, of Solva Road, Swansea, pleaded guilty to using threatening words or behaviour. His case was adjourned for sentence.

Phillips, of Penderry Road, Swansea, pleaded guilty to using threatening words or behaviour both inside and outside the ground.

His case was adjourned until 13 June but a temporary order is in place banning him from attending matches and he was warned he may face prison.

Kevin Dunn, 24, from Llanelli Sirgar, did not turn up to the hearing and a warrant was issued.
