Wolves player charged with affray


An English First Division footballer has been charged with affray, his club said today.

Striker Adam Proudlock, 20, who plays for Wolverhampton Wanderers, will appear at Telford Magistrates Court next Monday in connection with an alleged incident at Christmas.

Wolves said in a statement on its official club web site: "We have been informed that Adam Proudlock has been charged by police with affray.

"This is in relation to an incident that allegedly took place in Newport, Shropshire, over the Christmas period.

"Adam is due to appear in court on Monday (January 14th) and therefore, for legal reasons, we are unable to comment on this specific matter.

"However, as with any such incident that may involve any club employee, the situation will be monitored closely and once the facts have been accurately established, appropriate action will be taken if necessary."

West Mercia Police in Telford said they charged three men with affray yesterday following an incident at the end of last year.

A statement said: "Two 20-year-old men and an 18-year-old man, all from the Newport area, were charged with affray after an alleged assault on December 27th in which three people sustained minor injuries in Upper Bar Street in Newport just before 3 a.m.

"All three were bailed to appear before Telford Magistrates Court on Monday January 14th."
