Former Luton town manager Gary Brabin has today told a court he did not assault two York City stewards, but instead feared for his own safety. Brabin, 41, was giving evidence at the start of his defence case at Selby Magistrates Court.
During a match at Bootham Crescent last April, he was ordered from the pitch by the referee.
One of two stewards who escorted him to the tunnel claims Brabin head butted him, the other alleges he was elbowed. But Brabin said the way the stewards were manhandling him made that physically impossible.
Brabin denies two charges of assault and one of using threatening words or behaviour. The trial continues.
