A Norwich City fan has admitted assaulting a police officer during an away clash with Burton Albion.

Mark Gilboy, 36, was charged with a number of offences committed at Burton’s Pirelli Stadium where the Canaries’ drew 0-0 with their Championship opponents in December.

Gilboy, of Leziate Drove, Ashwicken, King’s Lynn, Norfolk, will be sentenced when he appears at Norwich Magistrates Court on Monday, February 19.

It comes after a previous appearance at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court, where he pleaded guilty to assaulting a police sergeant in the execution of his duty on December 30 2017.

He also admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour towards a man and another charge of being drunk in a designated sports ground during a football match.

He was granted bail with conditions that he does not enter any designated football match four hours before or four hours after the event.
