NOTORIOUS Carlisle football hooligan Paul Dodd was banned from leaving Cumbria yesterday – just hours before the World Cup finals kicked-off in Germany.
He has also been ordered to report to the city’s police station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
They were set as bail conditions by Carlisle magistrates, where the 35-year-old made a brief appearance.
Dodd, of Currock Park Avenue, was accused of breaching a soccer banning order, imposed for six years in May 2002.
He was supposed to have handed his passport into police by May 31 to ensure he could not travel to the tournament, but was arrested the following day when he failed to do so.
Geoff Clapp, defending, had argued that there was no need for the court to impose the conditions because Dodd did not have a passport, meaning he could not have handed one to police.
He also claimed it was “wholly unnecessary” for him to report to police because officers knew where he was and that his client had not been to a football match for five years.
Dodd was also accused – along with Lisa Brown, 38, of Flower Street, Botcherby – of being in possession of the Class A drug diamorphine on May 30.
No pleas were entered by Dodd or Brown for any charges and their cases were adjourned until June 23.
James Campbell, 25, of Finn Avenue, Carlisle, and Malcolm Shaftoe, 30, of Beverly Rise, Harraby – have also been accused of breaching their banning orders and will appear before magistrates later this month.
