A REPENTANT teenage Millwall fan said he would do 'anything' to avoid being banned from football matches, after running onto the pitch at Crewe last month.
Nineteen-year-old Dean Walker said he was simply 'overexcited' when Jason Price fired home a late Lions' winner and couldn't control himself.
But Walker, who was arrested along with four other visiting fans to Gresty Road, will face a three-year ban from all football grounds at Crewe Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, Friday, April 17.
Having made a public apology on a host of fan sites, he told the 'News': "I would do anything, pay any fine not to get banned. It was a mistake. I was just carried away and ran down the bottom of the stairs and before I knew it I was out on the pitch.
"There was a little gap in the wall that I went through without realising what I was doing.
"I have been a Millwall fan since I was ten and don't want to miss it over this. I have written to the club and written to John Berylson to see if there is anything he can do to help, but I will have to see what the judge says."
Walker, from Dartford, was caught and led away by a host of stewards and held in a waiting room before being arrested. He said: "We were taken into a little hut away from the pitch and handcuffed to a pole. I think it is where the stewards meet and have their lunch. It was not nice."
