Banning order for Everton fan following racist abuse
An Everton fan has been fined and banned from all football stadia in the country after being found guilty of racist abuse, reports SkySports. William Blything subjected Toffees striker Victor Anichebe to a verbal torrent of abuse during the 1-1 draw with QPR at Loftus Road in October last year.
The 41-year-old merchant seaman was also found guilty of shouting racist abuse at QPR midfielder Park Ji-sung.
Blything was arrested following complaints from fellow Everton fan Neil Jordan, who gave evidence at the hearing at West London Magistrates Court.
Blything denied both allegations claiming he was a victim of mistaken identity.
