Madine to appeal over 18-month jail sentence

Gary Madine is to appeal against his 18-month jail sentence for two nightclub assaults.

The 23-year-old Wednesday striker was sent to prison earlier this month following a trial at Leeds Crown Court but his legal team has today said that Madine will appeal against the conviction.

As yet, Wednesday have not made an announcement about Madine’s future since his jailing and in a statement today they said: “Following consultation with the legal team of Gary Madine, Sheffield Wednesday have been made aware of their intention to lodge an appeal following the 23-year-old’s recent trial at Leeds Crown Court.

“Until the conclusion of this or any other legal process, the club will make no further comment.”
