Footballer admits assault in pub brawl

Have your say

A Championship footballer has admitted assault in a pub brawl.

Ipswich Town striker Paul Taylor, 25, from Rendlesham, Suffolk, was arrested after the incident at the Robert Ransome pub in Ipswich in October.

Yesterday at Ipswich Crown Court, he admitted assault causing actual bodily harm to Shaun Grey.

Olatunde Ademuyiwa, 24, of Beechway, Liverpool, also admitted actual bodily harm and assault by beating Gary Harper.

Taylor was granted bail on condition that he does not go to the Robert Ransome pub. The court heard he has no previous convictions. Both men will be sentenced on June 25.

Taylor has been out of the Ipswich squad since breaking a foot during a match in September and has played just three times since completing a move from Peterborough United in August.
