Fans of Brentford F.C have been sentenced after a prearranged fight.

Six Brentford supporters have been sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Monday (November 11) after they arranged a fight against Millwall fans before a match on public wasteland on August 25, 2018.

The fight took place on wasteland between Crane Park in Hounslow and Leitrim Park in Hanworth, which was captured on camera and uploaded to Youtube. The footage showed that the opposing groups came at each other with punches, kicks, slaps and pushes while they shouted verbal abuse.

Joel Titus, 28, from Pinner was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, suspended for two years and has 200 hours of unpaid work.

Harry Hackett, 24, from Rayners Lane was sentenced to seven months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months and has 100 hours of unpaid work.

Costs of £650 and a one-year community orders with 100 hours of unpaid work each were sentenced to Guy Claxton, 25, from Whitton, Richmond; Szymon Kacki, 28, from Ealing; Nathan Mills, 22, from Isleworth, Hounslow; and Harry Farnan, 23, from Staines, Surrey.

During the fight, Titus acted as a ‘referee’ where he watched over the fight and would stop the fight when someone was knocked down so that participants can ‘reset’ themselves.

Fiona Whillis, a Senior Crown Prosecutor at the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “This was a pre-planned fight between two rival groups of football supporters who were abiding by some form of combat rules.

“The Millwall group wore clothing on their upper halves and the Brentford group were topless – no doubt to allow participants to easily identify their opponents.

“Organised fighting is illegal without a proper licence and these defendants went against the law by engaging in this behaviour, which could have resulted in serious injuries had the fight escalated.”
