A former Bradford City footballer has appeared in court charged with sex offences.

Tyrell Robinson, aged 22, appeared via video link at Bradford Magistrates' Court accused of sexually touching a 14-year-old girl and of making and distributing an indecent image of a child via social media in August 2018.

The winger, who was sacked by Bradford earlier this year, will appear before Bradford Crown Court on the 16th June.

Mr Robinson, this case will be sent to Bradford Crown Court.<
