A 29-year-old Wrexham supporter has been issued with a three-year Football Banning Order following disorder-related offences at an away game.

Adam Edwards, of New Hall Road, Ruabon, appeared at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court on Tuesday, 26 March.

He pleaded guilty to throwing a missile onto a football playing area, and possession of a flare/firework at a sporting event.

The offences occurred during Wrexham’s League Two match at MK Dons on Tuesday, 20 February.

Edwards will now be prevented from attending any football matches in the UK for the duration of the order.

He will also be prohibited from being within 2,500 metres of any regulated stadia on matchdays and banned from entering any town/city where Wrexham AFC or the Wales national team are playing an away match.


NWP’s Dedicated Football Officer, Dave Evans said: “Supporters attending games and who are found to have thrown any objects from the stands will be arrested.

“As was the case here, possession of fireworks or flares at sports grounds is an arrestable offence, with lengthy banning orders also enforceable.

“I’d urge everyone to refrain from taking pyro devices to matches – where crowds make the risk of potential injury a very real threat.

“Flares, smoke grenades and fireworks are banned at games in the UK for a reason – they have the potential to cause harm and distress. They also pose a serious fire risk.

“Those who use these devices are endangering themselves and others. Anyone found to be using them at matches will be dealt with in the strictest terms.”
