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

Aaron Cawley, 21, from Cheltenham, pleaded guilty to assault and invading the pitch during Sheffield Wednesday's home match against Leeds United on Friday night.

Cawley was arrested after Wednesday keeper Chris Kirkland was pushed in the face during the game at Hillsborough stadium.

Kirkland, who has played for England, was shoved to the ground moments after conceding an equaliser in the 76th minute.

A man was clearly seen running from the Leeds fans onto the pitch and pushing Kirkland in the face before running back into the crowd.

The incident was caught on camera by Sky Sports, which was broadcasting the game.
