Derby fans banned after attacks on police at Nottingham Forest and Leeds matches

A couple of Derby County supporters have been given banning orders from football after they assaulted two police officers in the 2018/19 season.

The first of the two was Jack Gregory, pleaded guilty for hitting out at a female police officer – who suffered serious bruising during his side’s clash against Nottingham Forest back in February.

He is reported to have been handed a three year football banning order, a one year community order, 60 hours of unpaid work and costs of £470.

At a different match, Derby County vs Leeds United on the 11th of May, another fan named Archie Chadwick assaulted a police officer. As he was getting arrested, he was also found to be in possession of cocaine.

He pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of the police force and possession of cocaine at court on the 9th of July.

22-year-old Chadwick was given a three year football banning order, a one year community order, ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work and to pay £270.

Throwback to when according to one fan, it as one fan says below ‘all got a bit tasty’ between Derby and Leeds, though no officers can be seen in this one…

PC Roger Brown, from Derbyshire Constabulary’s football policing unit, said: “The assault of two police officers whilst trying to ensure the safety of fans is completely unacceptable and professionally and personally saddens me.

“While we have a small number of officers who are dedicated to the policing of football matches all other officers are the same men and women who keep Derbyshire safe every other day of the week. Injuries sustained as a result of people like Chadwick and Gregory has an impact on the day-to-day policing of our county.

“Football banning orders are requested as a matter of last resort and only when appropriate.

“I hope the banning orders and other punishments handed to Chadwick and Gregory show how seriously these offences are taken and should act as an example to anyone who attends, either home or away, with the intention of causing trouble that their behaviour will not be tolerated.

“Derby County is a brilliantly supported club with fans who are, ordinarily, very well behaved and these two individuals are not typical of the great supporters we engage with every week.”


After watching the video of both sets of fans bizarrely mouthing out to each other just feet apart instead of fighting, fans took to give their reaction on it with many making an amusing reply – find out what they wrote on the next page.
