Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine has arrived at Leeds Crown Court to be sentenced for knocking two men out in separate city centre attacks.

The 23-year-old was dressed in jeans and a hoodie and carrying a bag as he arrived at Leeds Crown Court to be sentenced.

Madine was found guilty of hitting Daniel Beresford in the Paris Bar in February 2012, and four weeks later attacking Reece Hall in the Viper Rooms.

A jury at Leeds Crown Court last month convicted him of causing Mr Beresford actual bodily harm and causing Mr Hall grievous bodily harm.

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.

More soon.
