A pitch invader who admitted invading the pitch and taking a free kick during a Premier League has avoided a ban.

Jordan Dunn, of Dover in Kent, sprinted from the stands at Upton Park on August 16 before striking the ball being lined up by Tottenham Hotspur player Christian Eriksen.

His shot was saved by West Ham's Spanish goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel del Castillo, while the fan was chased by a steward.

At Thames Magistrates Court yesterday he was fined £305 under the Football Offences Act but did not receive a ban.
