The former Luton town manager Gary Brabin has gone on trial accused of assaulting two stewards at York City. The offences are alleged to have happened when the teams met at Bootham Crescent in April 2011.
Brabin, who'd been ordered off the pitch by the referee, is accused of head butting one steward and elbowing another. But his defence barrister claims they forced him to the ground and he could not have done it. Brabin denies 2 charges of assault and one of using threatening words or behaviour.
The trial at Selby Magistrates court continues.
