No matches for 10 years for attacking Jack Grealish

A Birmingham City fan has been jailed for attacking Aston Villa footballer Jack Grealish on the pitch.

Paul Mitchell, 27, pleaded guilty at Birmingham Magistrates' Court to assault and a charge of encroaching on to the playing surface during Sunday's derby match.

He was sentenced to 14 weeks in jail and given a 10-year football banning order.

Birmingham City have already said the father of one will be banned for life from their stadium.

Despite the assault, the Villa captain went on to score the game's only goal.

The court heard Mitchell decided to run on to the pitch for a "joke" and claimed not to have been drunk when he launched the on-field attack.
