Newcastle United to ban pitch invaders

Newcastle to ban pitch invaders
Newcastle United are planning to ban anyone found guilty of pitch invading during the club's friendly with Darlington last Friday.

Newcastle United are planning to ban supporters who caused trouble during last Friday's friendly encounter at Darlington.

Club officials are currently working in conjunction with Northumbria Police to identify those involved in a pitch invasion, while the Football Association remains in contact with both clubs regarding the incident.

Newcastle have also revealed that the incident has prompted a restriction in the sale of tickets for future Magpies away fixtures.

"The club will not tolerate any kind of criminal or anti-social behaviour from fans at home or away fixtures, and anyone who is identified as being involved in such behaviour may be subject to a club banning order over and above any action taken by the police," a statement on Newcastle's official website said.

"The club has already received calls from a number of law abiding fans who have provided information which will help identify offenders. This information is being treated in the strictest confidence and will be shared with the police.

"In order to combat any possible trouble at future away fixtures, a new policy will be implemented by the club which will see ticket sales restricted to season ticket holders and members only.

"As such, the buyer will be held accountable for any trouble associated with the purchase/use of a ticket."

The game at the Northern Echo Arena ended 2-0 to Newcastle.
