A HIBS fan who rampaged through Paisley when his team clashed with St Mirren has narrowly avoided being sent to jail.

Terence Mark Gilmour, 30, was today banned from attending matches for two years after admitting causing trouble in February.

Paisley Sheriff Court heard how Gilmour formed part of a disorderly crowd en-route to the game and engaged in behaviour likely to incite public disorder.

Two co-accused – Ryan Brown, 19, of West Pilton Lea, and Steven Piercy, 18, of Pirrie Street – were handed two-year Football Banning Orders at an earlier hearing.

The three were arrested after confronting a group of eight St Mirren supporters before chasing them.

Gilmour, of Craigmount Brae, was also given a two-year community payback order by Sheriff David Pender yesterday, requiring him to complete 250 hours of unpaid work.

Sheriff Pender said: “Though behaviour such as this, it is not only clear that you bring the name of Hibs Football Club into disrepute, but if also effects the reputation of Scottish football in general.”
