Jordan Dunn, 22, forced West Ham goalkeeper Adrian into making a save after acting on an impulse when he invaded the pitch at Upton Park on August 16th.

He he apologised yesterday for a "moment of madness" as he pleaded guilty to a charge under Section 4 of the Football Offences Act 1991.

He was ordered by the judge to pay a total of £305 but spared a ban from attending future matches.

Today an online appeal titled "Jordan Dunn FineRaiser" reached that amount after attracting 37 donations.
