Pitch invasions

Offenders to receive automatic club ban under new Premier League & EFL measures

Pitch invaders at Premier League and English Football League matches will receive an automatic club ban under new measures to tackle fan behaviour.

Concerns were raised about safety at grounds after a number of pitch invasions at the end of last season.

Individuals who carry or use pyrotechnics or smoke bombs will also be banned and identified offenders will be reported to the police.

The Football Association will also implement tougher sanctions for clubs.

It is an offence for fans to enter the pitch "without lawful authority or lawful excuse" under the Football Offences Act 1991 - but offenders have not always been prosecuted.

However, prosecuting offenders will now be the "default response" under the new measures.

The leagues and the FA will:

Work with clubs to improve searches of individuals

Increase use of sniffer dogs at grounds

Work with social media platforms to quickly remove fan-generated videos of illegal behaviour

Ask the government to restrict the supply of pyrotechnics and smoke bombs

Potentially ban accompanying parents or guardians of children who take part in illegal behaviour

The Premier League, EFL and FA will also work with police forces to "establish a new principle for cases relating to pyrotechnics and smoke bombs".

Rhys Williams
at 18:43 19 Jul 2022

Blackpool sign defender on season-long loan from Liverpool


Blackpool have signed defender Rhys Williams on a season-long loan from Premier League side Liverpool.

The 21-year-old spent part of last season on loan at Swansea City in the Championship, making seven appearances.

Prior to that loan spell, Williams made 19 appearances in all competitions for the Reds in 2020-21.

"I think I'm aerially dominant because of my height, and I'm a vocal defender. I like to have the ball at my feet too," he told the club's website.

"I spoke to [boss Michael Appleton] before signing, and he was really complimentary and said only good things about the football club and the journey it's going on.

"I want to be a part of that, and I'm really looking forward to getting started."
