Scott Dixon, 27, of Linton Close Carlisle, received a 3 year football banning order at York Magistrates. Dixon was arrested at York City v Carlisle United on 19 September.

Scientists studying nuclear waste at Sellafield say new research could mean quicker and cheaper decommissioning.
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), which is responsible for cleaning up the country's nuclear waste, has been criticised for soaring costs and slipping deadlines.
Scientists say their discovery will mean a "radically simplified approach" to the packaging and disposal of intermediate level waste.
The research looked at the chemical behaviours of waste stored in the Magnox Swarf storage Silo. It is one of the UK’s most hazardous buildings and has been prioritised for clean-up by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
Previously, scientists thought a 22-step mechanical treatment and encapsulation process was necessary to manage and dispose of the waste stored in silos constructed over fifty years ago.
But the study’s findings suggest the old method could be replaced with an alternative three-step solution which stores the "raw" waste with concrete grout inside a shielded container.
Dr Adrian Simper, the NDA’s Strategy and Technology Director, said:
The four-year study was led by the NDA, Sellafield Ltd and the National Nuclear Laboratory, with academics from the universities of Bristol, Leeds and London South Bank.
Their findings are being met with caution by Cumbrian environmental campaigners.
The Green Party's Jill Perry told ITV Border it makes no sense for the Government to remain "wedded" to the nuclear industry:
A new research, teaching and medical education campus has launched in West Cumbria aimed at improving healthcare at every level across the region.
West Cumberland Medical Education Campus (WCMEC) is a collaboration between several institutions including the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust and NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group.
It will develop education in medicine and related areas such as dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and policy.
The new campus, hopes to deliver innovative improvements in remote and rural healthcare and develop new integrated models of care for the local area.
It will also provide a local facility to train West Cumbria’s clinical workforce and attract the best global students to the area to benefit patient care.
The campus will combine academic facilities at UCLan’s Westlakes campus and neighbouring clinical facilities at the new West Cumberland Hospital, which has already represented a significant step for local communities and the development of healthcare in West Cumbria.
Professor St John Crean, Executive Dean of UCLan’s College of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences, said:
Dr Jeremy Rushmer, Medical Director at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, said:

Cumbria's biggest hydro-electric scheme is nearing completion. The construction work stretches for almost a mile and a half across a mountainside just outside Ambleside.
When complete it will provide the equivalent of half the power needed by the village, around 1400 homes.
The force of the water flowing down Scandale Beck is being harnessed and will be turned into hydro-electric power when the £2.8 million project is opened next month. The company building the scheme, Ellergreen Hydro, has a rather unusual partner. A third of the money has come from the Carlisle Diocese of the Church of England.
Martin Jayne, the Chairman of the Carlisle Diocesan Finance Board, says:
Ellergreen Hydro is involved with more than 15 similar schemes around the Lake District. It says hydro electric power is becoming more and more popular in Cumbria and this scheme will also allow people to choose directly to make use of it.
Mark Cropper, the Managing Director, says:
At the moment the construction work has left a very obvious scar on the landscape, but the company says in 18 months it will be impossible to see that any work has taken place here.
Young farmers across Dumfries and Galloway are turning their hands to a spot of agricultural art.
A series of decorated hay bales have sprung up in fields overlooking main transport routes in Dumfries & Galloway namely the A75 and A76.

New figures show Keswick has the fifth highest house prices, in relation to other towns in its county, in England.
A study by Lloyds Bank found the average price in Keswick was nearly £300,000, 77% percent more than the overall average in Cumbria.
A million pound plan to transform Fell Foot Park near Newby Bridge on Windermere has been approved.
The development by the National Trust will include a new water-sports centre. It's hoped the investment will bring in more visitors.
But some people are objecting to the proposal because they fear it will cause extra noise and traffic problems.
