Mackem Banned For Three Years

A Sunderland fan who pushed over Steve Harper during last season's Wear-Tyne has been banned from the Stadium of Light for three years. Ross Miller has received thousands of internet threats from Toon fans following Asamoah Gyan’s last-minute equaliser for the Mackems in January. The 17-year-old appeared at Sunderland Youth Court yesterday, where he pleaded guilty to assault, entering the playing area and a public order offence. He was given a 3-year football banning order. Prosecutor Michael Rose said: “Ross approached the Newcastle goalkeeper, pushing him from behind. “He fell down and stayed down for a little while, but made no complaint of assault himself. “Ross returned to the stands, was seized by other supporters and delivered to the stewards.” After a plea from Mr Miller, the terms of the ban were changed to allow his son to watch his local team, Spennymoor Town.
