Fan handed four-month jail term
A football fan was jailed for 16 weeks on Monday after he admitted attacking goalkeeper Chris Kirkland at Hillsborough on Friday night.
Aaron Cawley, 21, from Cheltenham, pleaded guilty to assault and invading the pitch during Sheffield Wednesday's televised home match against Leeds.
Cawley, who appeared at Sheffield Magistrates' Court, was arrested after Wednesday keeper Kirkland was pushed in the face during the game at Hillsborough.
The incident was one of a number of ugly scenes at the Yorkshire derby, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Kirkland, who has played for England, was shoved to the ground moments after conceding an equaliser in the 76th minute.
A man was clearly seen running from the Leeds fans onto the pitch and pushing Kirkland in the face before running back into the crowd.
The incident was caught on camera by Sky Sports, which was broadcasting the game.
