Highland League strugglers Fort William have banned 'ultras' from attending their matches – unless they are accompanied by a parent.

The Fort - who were the subject of a BBC documentary last year after they failed to win a match in two seasons - have taken the move following what chairman Peter Murphy has described as "unacceptable behaviour of The Ultras supporters group over a number of games this season".

Their record on the pitch has improved this season, however, with three victories to date, although they remain bottom of the table, three points behind Lossiemouth but with eight games in hand on them.

"Following unacceptable behaviour of The Ultras supporters group over a number of games this season we have taken the decision to ban this group from home games," read a statement on the club's official website.
