BARNSLEY FC have banned 25 supporters due to anti-social behaviour and public disorder.

The offences mainly took place on Saturday in Huddersfield, where the Reds played in the FA Cup.

A local pub and public transport are thought to have been vandalised.

A club statement read: “Our message is clear. Anti-social and criminal behaviour is not tolerated in any form. The club will continue to work alongside South Yorkshire Police to identify and support the prosecution of offending individuals.

“We are aware that the overwhelming majority of Reds are passionate, loyal and committed supporters who do not want the club’s name associating with these charges.

“As a result of this minority, the club will improve security measures both at Oakwell and away from home to help identify these people more efficiently. We will now also fund enhanced police and stewarding assistance for forthcoming fixtures.”
