According to noted soccer photographer Craig Norwood, the man who assaulted the goalkeeper is 20-year-old Aaron Cawley. He's a huge fan of the Leeds football club, but has been banned from every single football stadium in England since he was 16 and was found to be involved in a giant riot that took place outside a match. Cawley broke that ban to go to this week's game, only to illustrate the very type of behavior that got him in trouble in the first place. This would be the fourth time Cawley has violated his ban, proving they should probably develop some kind of super ban to keep this guy out of the stands.
