May 8, 2010 – part of a group of troublemakers who caused disorder on the day of Grimsby Town's away match at Burton Albion.

July 17, 2010 – part of a group involved in a violent disorder before and after a pre-season friendly match between Grimsby and Sheffield Wednesday.
The incidents were not serious but opposing fans tried to clash and it was only because of the intervention of the police that further trouble was prevented.

April 21 this year – part of a group that was baiting and goading Telford supporters during a Grimsby away match. He was part of a group singing provocative songs and threatening to go onto the pitch. A smoke device was set off in the stand.

He is banned from attending sports events at Blundell Park and going within a half-mile radius of the ground when Grimsby Town are playing, three hours before and three hours after.
He must not enter any town or city where Grimsby Town are playing in away matches and must not go on the rail or underground system without permission when Grimsby or England are playing.
