Brentford Football Club fans sentenced for brawl with Millwall fans

Six Brentford Football Club supporters have been sentenced for their part in a pre-arranged fight against Millwall fans on public wasteland.

The fighting took place on wasteland between Crane Park in Hounslow and Leitrim Park in Hanworth on August 25 2018.

Footage later uploaded on to YouTube showed that the opposing groups came at each other exchanging punches, kicks, slaps and pushing each other while shouting verbal abuse.

The brawl also had two referees and occasionally when someone was knocked to the ground, the fighting would be stopped to allow participants to ‘reset’ themselves.

Joel Titus, 28, Guy Claxton, 25, Szymon Kacki, 28, Harry Hackett, 24, Nathan Mills, 22, and Harry Farnan, 23, were all sentenced for one count of affray at Isleworth Crown Court on November 11.

They had previously pleaded guilty to the charge.

Titus was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for two years and 200 hours of unpaid work.

Hackett was sentenced to seven months imprisonment suspended for 18 months with 100 hours of unpaid work.

Claxton, Kacki, Mills and Farnan received one-year community orders with 100 hours of unpaid work each to be completed.

All of the men were ordered to pay costs of £650.

Fiona Whillis, from the CPS, said: “This was a pre-planned fight between two rival groups of football supporters who were abiding by some form of combat rules.

“The Millwall group wore clothing on their upper halves and the Brentford group were topless – no doubt to allow participants to easily identify their opponents.

“Organised fighting is illegal without a proper licence and these defendants went against the law by engaging in this behaviour, which could have resulted in serious injuries had the fight escalated.”

    I was appalled by the fight. The wasteland between Crane Park in Hounslow and Leitrim Park was promised to a Sikh Community Group that run a soup kitchen outside Hanwell Football Club.

    It is terrible they went out of their to not cover their heads and still get away with funding.

    I hope the park keeper lost a days wages.
