Police have warned Welsh football fans that they risk hefty penalties and a ban from attending football matches if they invade the pitch during the upcoming European qualifiers.
Walesâ€™ win over Andorra in September was marred by several invaders who run onto the pitch shortly after Gareth Bale scored the winning goal.
Jonathan Williams, 25, from Aberdare broke a number of advertising signs whilst trying to clamber onto the pitch. Williams has today been issued with a four year football banning order as part of an ongoing investigation into the incident.
PC Christian Evans said: â€œI hope the banning order issued today sends out a clear message that similar behaviour will not be tolerated at matches.
â€œWhenever there is evidence of football-related disorder or violence we will always pursue those responsible to ensure appropriate action is taken. The overwhelming majority of Welsh fans are well-behaved and passionate about their team and their behaviour both at home and away games is usually excellent.
â€œThe expectation is for the atmosphere at these games to be family-friendly and we work closely with the Football Association of Wales to keep the troublemakers away.”
