The incident happened at Norwich City’s 3-0 victory over Watford on August 16.

Bronson Sims, 18, of Longwick, Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, was arrested in the away fans’ section at Carrow Road during the match.

He was conditionally discharged for nine months by Norwich magistrates.

Prosecutors had asked to impose a football banning order, but magistrates declined to do so.

Sims was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

David Bonner, 46, of Byron Road, Wealdstone, Middlesex, also appeared in court charged with racially aggravated threatening behaviour, having been arrested in the visitors’ section at the same match.

He did not enter a plea and his case was adjourned until October 2.
