Ebbsfleet United face action from The FA after supporters entered the field of play twice in recent games.

The National League club will have to answer to the Football Association following the incidents and are now taking steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

These include bans, increased stewarding and higher perimeter fencing which will all be discussed with the Fleet Supporters Trust.

Fleet’s vice chairman Peter Varney said: “Unfortunately a very small number of idiots are spoiling things for the overwhelming majority of supporters and this has to stop.

“There will be automatic life bans for this behaviour and we are looking at increasing the height of fencing at the Plough End.

“I appreciate this may not be popular with supporters but we have to demonstrate to our governing bodies that we are doing all we can to deal with this moronic behaviour which is tarnishing the good name of the club and penalising the club financially.”
