A football fan who punched a horse after his team lost to their arch-rivals has admitted violent disorder.
Barry Rogerson, 45, was charged after trouble started when Newcastle United lost 3-0 at home to Sunderland in April.
He appeared in the dock at Newcastle Crown Court today with five others who also admitted violent disorder.
Rogerson, of Bedlington, Northumberland, previously denied the offence.
