The Swindon Town fan who invaded the pitch and threw three punches at Orient goalkeeper Jamie Jones has been banned from football for three years.

Andrew Bowles, 26, of Newbury, has also been ordered to do 150 hours unpaid community work, pay £100 in compensation for common assault, a £60 victim surcharge as well as £85 in Crown Prosecution costs.
