Protesting Pitch Invader Gets Three Year Ban

Last updated : 04 January 2018 By CNS Sport/AO

A Coventry City supporter has been given a three year ban for getting onto the pitch during the 1-0 defeat to Forest Green Rovers and saying what many in the crowd that night were thinking in that the performance was not good enough.

Darren Kedzierski came out of the East Stand and made his feelings known to captain Michael Doyle, Jack Grimmer and Marc McNulty before getting off the pitch when asked to Michael Doyle in an incident which went viral. 

The City supporter, who had clearly reached the end of his tether with a club he had supported since 1976, was fined by Coventry Magistrates £40 and ordered to pay £100 court costs plus a £30 victim surcharge.

Mr Kedzierski, who was banned by the Ricoh Arena owners for life, has been also given a standard three year Football Banning Order which means he will not be able to attend matches from National League North upwards.
