Gary Madine jail warning


Recommended Posts

A former Carlisle United footballer has been told he is likely to be jailed after he was convicted of punching two men in separate nightclub attacks.

Gary Madine, 23, who now plays for Championship side Sheffield Wednesday, shook his head after he was found guilty at Leeds Crown Court of causing Sheffield United fan Reece Hall grievous bodily harm.

He was earlier found guilty by a jury of causing Wednesday fan Daniel Beresford actual bodily harm after a week-long trial and more than seven hours of deliberations.

Madine, who has a previous conviction for knocking a man out in a Carlisle pub, punched Mr Beresford in the Paris Bar in Sheffield city centre in February last year, breaking his nose.

Four weeks later, he punched bricklayer Mr Hall in the city’s Viper Room club, shattering his cheekbone.

Today Judge Rodney Jameson QC gave Madine bail but told him: “You must understand that an immediate custodial sentence is very likely.”

No sentencing date has been fixed.
