Woman headbutted by a mother at a junior football match

Lothian and Borders police are investigating an alleged assault that took place at Double Hedges Park, Liberton, Edinburgh during a football competition known as the John McConnell Cup between under-15 sides Edinburgh City and Inch Colts.

A woman, Heather Clarke, was allegedly headbutted in the face, which resulted in a burst nose, by a mother of one of the other youngsters during the game. This itself was followed by the mother alleged punching Ms Clarke’s daughter.

Whilst, arguably, not amounting to the type of violence seen in Old Firm football matches, the criminal allegations of an assault in this case are serious. The police are continuing with their investigations and are appealing for witnesses to the events.

If you have been charged with an assault it is advisable to seek advice from criminal defence solicitors as soon as possible to determine the best course of action, such as pleading guilty at an early stage or pleading a defence if applicable. Read our assault briefing for further information.
