Woman footballer in Carlisle court on match assault charge
Published at 14:46, Monday, 16 June 2014
A woman footballer has appeared at Carlisle Crown Court accused of injuring another player during a match.
Natasha Carole Scott – who is known as “Tash” when she is playing for Crown Newlaithes in Carlisle – is alleged to have broken 22-year-old Hayley Milburn’s nose by elbowing her in the face in an off-the-ball incident.
Today Scott, 20, of Glaramara Drive, Carlisle, pleaded not guilty to assaulting Ms Milburn, causing her actual bodily harm.
She was remanded on bail until June 30, when she will be back in court to hear the result of further consideration that the judge asked the Crown Prosecution Service to give to the case.
The alleged incident – which was missed by the referee – happened during Crown Newlaithes’ game against Abbeytown Ladies at Rickerby Park on November 10 last year.
Scott scored Crown Newlaithes’ goal but Abbeytown won 2-1.
