A football fan has been jailed for 16 weeks after he admitted attacking a goalkeeper during a televised football match.

Aaron Cawley, 21, from Cheltenham, pleaded guilty to assault and invading the pitch during 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.
