Dispersal order in place ahead of Lincoln City game against Cambridge United

It will be active from 7am until 11pm.

Lincolnshire Police have put dispersal order in place ahead of this Saturday’s Lincoln City fixture with Cambridge United, giving officers the power to ban anyone behaving in an anti-social manner from the area.

The order applies to the whole of the city centre from the Bailgate area to Boultham and from the university bridge to Broadgate/Canwick Road.

It will be active from 7am until 11pm on Saturday, October 14.

The match is due to take place at Sincil Bank at 3pm.

This comes after a number of arrests following Lincoln City games over the last few months.

As previously reported, three people were arrested last month following reports of disorderly behaviour by Lincoln City fans following the following Imps’ 4-1 defeat against Notts County.

On Saturday, September 23, British Transport Police officers responded to an incident of disorder at Nottingham railway station after the match, which saw over 4,000 Imps make the trip down.

A football fan was also charged after a flare was thrown at a Lincoln City home game last month.

Lucasz Rojek, 18, of Milton Street, Mansfield, was charged with throwing a missile at the Mansfield Town/Lincoln City match on Saturday, September 16.
