A football fan caught by Norfolk police breaching a banning order has been barred from watching his team play for another three years.

Wycombe Wanderers supporter Alan Liddiard, 40, was seen in a Norwich pub by one of Norfolk Constabulary's football 'spotters' 45 minutes before his team were due to take on the Canaries at Carrow Road last August.

Two years ago Liddiard, of Burleigh Road, Hillingdon, was banned from being within three kilometres of any away ground Wycombe were due to play at.

The order had been imposed by Milton Keynes magistrates on April 24 2008 after he admitted making racist chants when Wycombe played MK Dons twelve days previously.

The court heard Liddiard did not attend the League One match at Carrow Road, which Norwich won 5-2.

At Wycombe Magistrates' Court, Liddiard admitted three breaches of the football banning order and police records showed he had twice failed to give up his passport on a match day - specified as part of the order.

Liddiard did not offer any mitigation and his previous banning order was revoked and replaced with a new one, banning him from attending Wycombe or England matches until March 31, 2013.

He must also not travel to places Wycombe are playing without first getting permission from British Transport Police and was ordered to do 40 hours of unpaid work.
