Former Barnsley FC assistant manager denies bribery
Former Barnsley FC assistant manager TommyÂ Wright has denied bribery during a court hearing today.
The 52-year-old, ofÂ Dark Lane, Barnsley, appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court today andÂ denied two counts of accepting a bribe between April and September 2016.
He appeared in court alongside Italian Giuseppe Pagliara, 62, of East Drive, Bury, Greater Manchester, and Dax Price, 47, of Susans Lane, Sittingbourne, Kent, who pleaded not guilty to two counts of paying and facilitating a bribe.
All three men were granted unconditional bail after a brief hearing and will appear at London's Southwark Crown Court on October 22.
They were charged last month after an investigation into English football and the activities of players' agents.
