Arsenal legend Ian Wright has backed a campaign to overturn a ban on a lifelong Gooner entering the Emirates Stadium.
Mick Doherty, a board member of Islington Boxing Club, was told he could not enter the ground last year after being involved in a fight at the Fonthill pub, in Fonthill Road, Finsbury Park.
Mr Doherty, who says the incident was not football related, pleaded guilty and served 180 hours community service – but police have insisted the ban remains.
Now the former Gunners striker has put his weight behind a petition which has already garnered almsot 2,500 signatures.
Mr Doherty said; “It was at a boxing event.
