    ​TWO murderers of a vulnerable Lincoln man had links to the far-right English Defence League, according to police.

    Daryll Jones, 17, and Mark Jackson, 21, were two of the top targets in Lincolnshire Police's attempts to ban people from the Sincil Bank area on Lincoln City match days.
    They were identified by football intelligence officers along with ten others in Operation Argyll.

    As reported in the Echo, this operation aims to use civil football banning orders to stop people hanging around with suspected troublemakers.

    But the cases against Jones and Jackson, of Yarborough Road, Lincoln, were put on hold after they were arrested on suspicion of killing football enthusiast Shaun Rossington.

    Asperger’s sufferer Shaun, 21, of Dunkirk Road, was found to have suffered more than 40 injuries. He was punched, kicked and stamped on during the attack on grassland, off Searby Road, on June 3.

    Jones and Jackson were found guilty of his murder, along with two others, at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday.


    Lincolnshire Police football intelligence officer PC Karl Williams said: "When we initially started Operation Argyll, Jones and Jackson were quite prominent.

    "If they had not been charged with murder, they would have been on the scheme.

    "We started to get information on these two every time Lincoln City had a game and there were some indications they were connected to the English Defence League."

    In September 2009, Jones and Jackson were banned from entering Lincoln City's Sincil Bank stadium and Lincoln United’s Ashby Avenue.

    Police issued the warnings after the pair were identified in a group that caused disorder at Ashby Avenue and Lincoln train station on August 22, 2009.

    Jones pleaded guilty to one public order offence related to these incidents last March.

    PC Williams said: "The ultimate aim of the operation is to target those youths not only causing problems at the football, but in the city centre and at night on the estates.

    "It was a case if we are able to ban them from the football, it's taking away the chance of them getting convicted of more serious offences.

    "We were compiling the cases on Jones and Jackson and they were quite strong.

    "They were two of our strongest ones and I have no doubt whatsoever we would have got them banned."

    Nicolas Shelbourne, 27, of Laughton Way, Lincoln, and Jordan O'Rouke, 17, were also convicted of Shaun's murder. Jurors found a 17-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, guilty of manslaughter.

    A 16-year-old boy was cleared of all charges. A 14-year-old girl was found not guilty of murder, but guilty of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
    What a nice bunch eh.
    /sarcasm.

    RIP.

    What does the man's disability have to do with anything? Is it not sick enough that they murdered somebody?

    It illustrates that the victim was a defenseless man who was killed in cold blood I believe.

    Being disabled usually makes it even worse because some types of disabilities make the victim unable to defend.

    We need to reform the prison service so that nasty ****ers that attack vulnerable people can be turned out into general population and deal with some nasty ****ers themselves.

    No doubt it was a terrible crime, but what relevance is their membership of the EDL? Any organisation of a significant size will have at least a few unpleasant people in it.

    Sure, I appreciate that say a wheelchair user might be less able to defend, but Asperger is more often psychologically-affecting, so socially misinterpreting the situation I could understand, but there's really been no mention that this was the case and (although this is based on second-hand experiences) I'm not sure is all that likely.

    With regards to cold blood; I dare say that was the case regardless.

    What does the fact they have links to the EDL have anything to do with it? They're football hooligans, which is the important part.

    Disgraceful act though, they deserve to be locked up

    The EDL are a bunch of yobs with low IQ. Just look at the many videos on Youtube of the silly things they've done. Most of them have no idea what they are protesting about.
    The recent humiliating attendance in Europe just shows how they lack support in the mainstream. Simple thugs.

    Anyway, these guys were football hooligans to does it surprise anyone they had links with the EDL...

    What does them being EDL have anything to do with it? Although tbh a lot of hooligans are attracted to the EDL. These killers, regardless of what apparent group or groups they have joined, are ********s for picking on the most social awkward of society. I hope their choice to murder a poor, defenceless man will impact whatever freedoms they are now limited to.

    Of course it's relevant. No not every significantly sized organisation has murderers. Let's not pretend here, the EDL does have a more aggressive/violent edge than say, the society againts trees being cut down or whatever.
