MAGISTRATES have banned a man from attending any football match for three years after he used threatening behaviour towards a disabled woman.

At Manchester Magistrates' Court Thomas Darcy, aged 55, of Collinwood Way, Westhoughton, pleaded guilty to committing the offence on New Year's Day in Manchester.

He was ordered to be electronically tagged and was sentenced to a 7pm to 7am curfew for four weeks and told to pay his victim £200 in compensation.
