A FAN who invaded the pitch during Rotherham United’s clash with rivals Sheffield Wednesday has been given a 12-month conditional discharge.
Clive Evans (24), of Hill Top Lane, Kimberworth, admitted at Sheffield Magistrates' Court yesterday (Tuesday) to a charge of going onto the playing area at a football match, an offence under the Football (Offences) Act 1991.
He ran onto the pitch at the New York Stadium on February 16 — the day the Millers drew 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday.
Evans also pleaded guilty to a charge of threatening behaviour on the same date.
He was ordered to pay £85 costs.
No football banning order was issued.
