(2007) Labour Cllr. David Phythian
A labour councillor has been handed a three-year football banning order after racially abusing former Latics defender Pascal Chimbonda - David Phythian hurled the sickening insults during Latics' epic 3-3 draw with Spurs in April. The French international was making his first appearance at the JJB following his acrimonious move to the London club, and was booed throughout the afternoon. But UpHolland ward councillor and Latics fan Phythian, 54, admitted using abusive or insulting words towards Chimbonda that were racially aggravated.
Wigan and Leigh magistrates banned him from attending all football matches in the UK for three years, fined him £250, and ordered him to pay £60 costs
