A Reading fan has been served with a three-year football banning order after making aeroplane gestures pertaining to Emiliano Sala's death.

Royals supporter Stuart Webb was seen making aeroplane gestures during the Championship clash with the Bluebirds, which caused huge amounts anger among Cardiff fans.

It resulted in stewards making their way over and escorting him down the stairs and ejecting him from Cardiff City Stadium.

The home supporters cheered in delight as the Royals fan was escorted away, then burst into a chorus of Sing a Song for Sala, their tribute to the late striker.

Following Webb's ejection, he was told he had been charged with a public order offence.

The 37-year-old admitted the offence and, on September 1, North and East Devon Magistrates' Court issued the ban, which means he will be unable to enter the Madejski Stadium or its surrounding areas on match days or attend any football match including Reading Football Club.


Mr Webb is also prohibited from visiting Reading town centre on match days three hours before or six hours after kick-off. The same applies to other town centres during match days when Reading play away from home.

PC Christian Evans, from South Wales Police, said: “The overwhelming majority of football fans are well-behaved and respectful to one another.

“Webb’s inflammatory gesture caused a great deal of distress to many people still grieving the death of Emiliano Sala.

“Hopefully this court result sends a clear message that similar behaviour will not be tolerated at matches.

“We work closely with Cardiff City Football Club and colleagues from other police forces to keep troublemakers away."

Don't agree with the ban tbh.

it's stupid, sick, offensive... but I can remember many of our fans singing Shipman songs, singing the paedo song at Robson when Dave Jones was manager et al.

I was more bothered about the pathetic announcements Reading made over the PA about our supposedly racist chanting.

Did more damage to our reputation than a thousand clowns doing plane gestures and nothing was done about it.

No that's the problem, they did retract it, quietly, much later when nobody was paying any attention, the headlines about our "racist" fans were already out there and the damage was already done.
