White Hart Lan pranksters banned for pitch selfies

By Sophie Tarr

Three pranksters who ran on to the pitch at White Hart Lane and posed for selfies have been banned from attending football matches until 2018.

Nathaniel Thompson (23), Helder Gomes (22) and Daniel Jarvis (26) were arrested after bizarre scenes during Tottenham Hotspur's Uefa Europa League clash with Partizan Belgrade on November 27.

The match had to be suspended before half-time after the men ran on to the pitch at the north London club, one after the other.

Gomes and Thompson were detained by stewards and Jarvis was tackled by a player.

All three men pleaded guilty at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court to a charge of entering a playing field without lawful excuse or authority.
