A football fan has admitted attacking a goalkeeper after running onto the pitch during a televised football match.

Aaron Cawley, 21, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, pleaded guilty to assault and entering the field following Sheffield Wednesday's home match against Leeds on Friday night.

Cawley, who appeared at Sheffield Magistrates' Court, was arrested after Wednesday keeper Chris Kirkland was pushed in the face during the game at Hillsborough.
