An Iron fan who threw a smoke bomb towards Doncaster Rovers supporters on the afternoon of the postponed fixture at Glanford Park has been given a five-year football banning order.
Jack Potts, 18, admitted causing alarm or distress by using threatening or abusive words or behaviour on February 6.
A Humberside Police statement said: “The court heard the incident happened as fans waited to board a train at Scunthorpe Railway Station and that the device had landed at the feet of the police.
“When Scunthorpe United play away from home, he is also banned from entering the home club’s town or city for four hours prior to and six hours after kick off.
“He was also given a six-week curfew and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work. He must also pay £85 costs, along with a £60 Government-imposed victims’ surcharge.
Football officer PC Paul Hurrell said: “This is another positive step in combating this kind of behaviour and sends a clear message that it will not be tolerated.”
