Banning orders handed to 12 Staffordshire men convicted of Vale v Stoke disorder

Three year football banning orders have been handed to 12 Staffordshire men, for their parts in the disorder that marred Port Vale's Football League Trophy tie with Stoke City's under 21s.

Mass disorder broke out before, during and after the game at Vale Park on 4 December 2018.

Detective Inspector Steve Ward, senior investigating officer for Staffordshire Police, said: “Since the fixture my team of detectives have been working hard to identify and locate all those responsible for the behaviour that resulted in thousands of pounds of damage at Vale Park.

“Three people have already been convicted with three-year banning orders included, but today is an important milestone as 12 more are brought to justice. Violence and disorder at sporting fixtures will never be tolerated and the banning orders will go some way to preventing such behaviour in future.”
