Enquiries identify Arsenal fans involved in the disorder continue.

PC Dan Fish, of Burnley Police, said: “The disorder between rival fans was completely unacceptable and should have no place in football.

It was only through good fortune that no-one was seriously injured.

“These banning orders send a strong message to any supporters wanting to engage in such violence.”

In a statement, Burnley Football Club added: "We know that the overwhelming majority of our supporters behave responsibly and are a credit to the Club and town they represent.

“However, the behaviour of a small number of individuals at the home fixture against Arsenal in September last year, was shocking and disgraceful and has no place whatsoever at Turf Moor or in society. As a result, 16 individuals were identified for their part in the disorder, 13 of which have received football banning orders and subsequent life bans from entering Turf Moor.

“This sort of behaviour will never be acceptable and anybody who behaves in this manner is not a supporter of the Club and should not expect to escape punishment. We cannot stress enough that anybody engaging in any unacceptable behaviour at our stadium, will be dealt with in the firmest possible manner.

“We will continue to work with our match day safety team, Lancashire Police and other stakeholders, to ensure such behaviour is dealt with appropriately, and that supporting Burnley Football Club home and away, continues to be an inclusive, welcoming and safe environment.”
