FELIXSTOWE: Two Ipswich Town hooligans are today barred from attending football matches for three years after being given banning orders.

Damion Trenter, of Cricket Hill Road, Felixstowe, and Damien Scott, of St Andrews Road, Felixstowe, are now prohibited from attending games in England, Wales, and Scotland until late 2013.

Trenter, 24, was arrested for making threats against a police officer following a disturbance after Ipswich’s 2-1 home win against Leeds on October 2.

Between 30 and 40 Leeds’ fans, whose coaches were parked in the old cattle market opposite the ground, tried to surge towards Town supporters in Portman Road.

Police had to use batons and dogs to contain the Yorkshire club’s fans. While officers were trying to clear an area between supporters of both sides Trenter threatened a police constable.

When he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates Court Trenter pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour and was also ordered to pay £250 costs.

Scott, 22, is understood to have spat at three stewards when he was due to be ejected during Ipswich’s game against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on September 11.

He admitted three counts of battery when he appeared before Portsmouth magistrates. As well as his banning order Scott was given a community order with six months supervision by probation. He was also given a three-month curfew order.

Following the bans Pc Marc Norman, Suffolk Police’s football intelligence officer, said: “These two orders send out a message to fans about the consequences of what happens when people misbehave.”

A Crown Prosecution Service spokesman said: “We hope these men will take stock of their actions – which have intimidated genuine football fans and innocent members of the public – and are deterred from similar behaviour in the future.”

  • al k hall obviously its difficult to enforce but the point is if they cause trouble and get arrested again while they are banned they probably can be sent to jail so they will either get sent to jail or they wont cause trouble again.... problem sorted

  • Fine !!.. so they are banned from every football game in the country..Apart from possibly being recognised at Ipswich what turnstile operator in another county will recognise them and so stop them enjoying an afternoon watching a game before upsetting other people's enjoyment afterwards.... PRISON is the only answer.

  • AA K Hall There are Ipswich football liasion officers at every away game. The only way they will get into a ground is if they disguise themselves wearing a replica shirt, blue and white wig and blue face paint like some of the other muppets

Inspired by tragic loss, heartfelt thanks or loved ones gone to soon - dozens of brave souls came together in appreciation of Suffolk’s largest hospital today.

With the UK terror threat level being lowered to ‘severe’, Suffolk’s Chief Constable Gareth Wilson has reassured residents that policing will remain more highly visible for the coming weekend.

The mother of missing RAF Honington serviceman Corrie McKeague, 23, has said as the days turn to months, it is difficult to remain positive.

The farmer who played a pivotal role in shaping and modernising the organisation behind next week’s Suffolk Show says he is very thankful for the support he has received.

Political campaigning is often unpredictable – and so it proved when we joined the Labour and Conservative teams fighting the marginal seat of Ipswich on Saturday morning.

The threat of a terrorist attack has been lowered by the government – meaning troops should no longer be patrolling the streets after Monday evening.

Police have found a 12-year-old boy from Felixstowe who had been missing since Friday evening – he was found shortly after officers issued a description in a bid to track him down and let his family know he was safe.

An Essex Police inspector has been found guilty of assaulting his neighbour after a McDonald’s coffee cup and hardcore on a tarpaulin encroached on to the officer’s driveway.
