Blues fans best behaved in the country
4:04pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in Sport
WANDERERS fans were the best behaved in the country last season, with their club being one of only four in the Football League not to have a supporter arrested.
Home Office figures on football-related disorder released today showed no supporters of Wanderers or League Two rivals Accrington Stanley, Fleetwood Town and Dagenham and Redbridge were arrested during the course of the 2012/13 season.
Blues were also one of 19 Football League clubs not to impose any banning orders over the course of the season. As of September 20 they have one supporter who is the subject of a Football Banning Order, which was already in place before the start of the season.
Dagenham had four banning orders slapped on their supporters last year while Accrington and Fleetwood both have two fans who are currently the subject of bans - meaning Wanderers have the cleanest record of the 92 Football League clubs.
The figures reveal a total of 1,762 people were arrested at matches last season, an increase of four per cent from last year. However the 2011/12 arrest figures are the lowest on record.
The majority of arrests were for public disorder or alcohol-related offences.
Newcastle United had the highest number of fans arrested last season, with 175 Magpies supporters feeling the long arm of the law.
Wanderers' Thames Valley rivals Oxford United had 39 fans arrested, the highest number in League Two.
