Sunderland star Lee Cattermole has had his ban from pubs and clubs in a region of the North-East extended for another year.
The midfielder has been spotted by licensees trying to get into venues.
Cattermole, 22, was originally banned in December 2008 after he was arrested for disorder on a night out in Yarm, North Yorkshire.
Stockton Pubwatch members – licensees who act to keep out troublemakers – voted to extend the ban.
Pubwatch chair Steve Paling said: “Members have voted unanimously. As licensees we are not prepared to take it any longer.”
The ban would have run out in December this year, but will now be extended until December 2012.
Cleveland police said: “Breach of pub barring is a civil offence. Police do not necessarily need to know about this or be involved.”
Sunderland FC said Cattermole declined to comment on the decision.
