WARRINGTON Wolves fans have been warned they face being banned if they set off flares and smoke bombs while following the Wire.

Club bosses say using them 'goes against the spirit' of rugby league and is a 'clear breach' of the sport's operational rules.

Flares have been seen both at The Halliwell Jones Stadium and away grounds this season and last.

The club was fined by the RFL as a result.

Chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick said: “Whoever pulls on the primrose and blue, be it a player or supporter, is representing the club and the town, and it is therefore important that we all uphold the same values of excellence, pride, respect and honesty, while still having the passion and enjoyment for our sport.

"As such the club encourages supporters to create an atmosphere on the terraces but in a manner that respects all those around them.”

Anyone who sees any anti-social behaviour while in The Halliwell Jones Stadium can contact the club anonymously by texting 07874 714775.

A spokesman added: "The club has a strict zero-tolerance policy. Any persons found in possession of or using such pyrotechnic articles will be ejected and subject to a banning order."
