Five men have been sentenced in connection with fan violence ahead of the Chester v Wrexham derby.

Two Wrexham fans and three Chester fans appeared in court following a fight in Chester city centre ahead of a match between the two sides on November 8 last year.

The incident was described by the judge as “a throwback to past ages where football hooliganism was rife”.

Daniel John Jones, 28, of Cliveden Road, Chester; Elliot Seville, 23, of St James Avenue, Upton, Chester; Louis Neal, 18, of Forest Road, Tarporley; Bobby Christopher, 25, of Ceiriog Road, Wrexham ; and Jack McKnight, 20, of Alexandra Road, Wrexham , all pleaded guilty to affray at Chester Magistrates’ Court on Friday 13 April.

They returned to the court for sentencing on Wednesday 18 April.
