Former Bermuda captain denies assault

A Bermuda footballer was charged yesterday with assault on a police officer at a sports ground at the weekend.

Cecoy Robinson, 31, from Hamilton Parish, denied the charge at Magistrates' Court.

The incident is alleged to have happened on Saturday as police carried out a liquor-licence check at the Bermuda Athletic Association in Pembroke.

Magistrate Tyrone Chin adjourned the case against Mr Robinson, who has captained the national side and is also the captain of Premier Division champions PHC Zebras, as well as the Bermuda Under-17 coach, until May 13.
