WREXHAM football fans charged with violent disorder near Chester railway station will face a crown court trial.

Six adults and four youths appeared at Chester Magistrates Court charged with using or threatening unlawful violence outside the Deva Mail Social Club, on Station Road, Chester, on January 24.

They will be committed to Chester Crown Court on June 11.

Another youth, who was 14 when the offence allegedly happened, admitted the charge and his solicitor, John Hughes, successfully argued his case should be remitted to Wrexham Youth Court.

The defendants, all from Wrexham, are: Joseph Mark Challoner, of Alexander House; Paul Stephen Jones, of Hall View, Caego; Richard Ulrich, of Broom Grove; Daniel Douglas Lloyd, of Green Gate Farm, Coedpoeth; Daniel Craig Peters, of St John's Court, Hightown; and Johnathon David Albert Mathias, of Queensway, Gwersyllt.

Jake Longworth, of High Street, Coedpoeth, was not able to attend court as he was remanded in custody on an unrelated matter.

He will appear in relation to the charge at Chester Magistrates Court on April 30.

The 15-year-old youths cannot be named for legal reasons.

Nigel James, prosecuting, showed the court CCTV footage of the incident when the club was attacked with concrete blocks and other weapons.

He said the 'organised violence' scared staff, and a young girl was said to have vomited through fear.

The defendants were given bail with conditions which prevent them from going near any Wrexham matches.

At their previous appearance, Chester Magistrates Court supplied them with a copy of a map which showed the area surrounding the Racecourse ground that they are banned from entering on any day Wrexham play at home.

They cannot enter this area from six hours prior to kick-off to six hours after the end of a game.

They are also banned from going within 2,000 metres of Chester railway station on Wrexham match days from six hours prior to kick-off to eight hours after kick-off.

They are also not allowed to go within a 10-mile radius of any premises outside Wrexham where Wrexham play away matches.

Bail conditions were varied for Jones and Mathias who work inside the banned area.

Their court appearance follows last week's decision to hold a crown court trial to hear the case of 15 Chester City supporters accused of affray after a stand-off with Wrexham followers outside Chester station.
