I see
In that case they can. A football club is a private institution and they are free to exclude or include anybody they like unless it offends against equal opportunities legislation like a racial or gender reason.
If it is just that he lives outside of their post code inclusion region then that is a lawful reason I'm afraid.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
