A man from Sawston's been convicted of a public order offence after abusing a steward at a Cambridge United match.
Paul Story, 50, of Evans Way, in Sawston, has been found guilty of an offence under Section 4 of the Public Order Act at Cambridge Magistrates' Court.
The court heard the incident happened at the home FA Cup match against Mansfield on December 6 last year.
Story was abusive and threatening to the steward, who had repeatedly asked him to stop standing in an area that had to be kept clear for health and safety reasons.
Story will be sentenced on May 28, when the court will also be asked to consider issuing him a Football Banning Order.
Inspector Steve Kerridge said:
"Following the Club's strong commitment to work with us to deny those involved in disorder and anti-social behaviour any association with Cambridge United, this is another positive outcome.
We continue to challenge such behaviour, collect and sift evidence and work with Cambridge United to exclude trouble-makers from a family club."
