Football fan banned over can of beer

A Manchester United football fan was banned indefinitely from its grounds after he was caught with an unopened can of beer in his bag.

manchester unitedJamie Bazley, a life-long supporter of the club, had the can of Stella Artois in his bag when it was discovered by officials, according to a report by The Daily Mail.

He was cautioned by the police and later sent a letter from the club, which Bazley posted on Twitter, banning him from all domestic and European away games.

It read: “We have been informed by the Police that you were arrested at the above game and subsequently cautioned for possession of alcohol on entry.

“The club has worked extensively with the FA, the Police and a number of local authorities to ensure our supporters are treated fairly and safely when supporting the Club at away grounds. This process is also linked to the allocation of tickets given to us as the away support.

“People who breach these safety measures are jeopardising our ticket allocations for future matches.

“As a result you will be banned from attending domestic and European away matches indefinitely.”

Bazley claimed he did not know he had the beer on him and said on Twitter that he “honestly thought I had drank [it] on the train”.

Another fan, Tom Molyneux, was given an identical ban following an incident at the same match after entering the grounds with a hip flask.

Both fans are planning to appeal their bans.
