Why No Mention Of What Team She Supports?


Recommended Posts

A FEMALE POSTIE horrified dozens of spectators at an Under-10s football match when she headbutted another mum.

Lisa Paterson launched the horrific assault after her son was heavily tackled by an opposition player.

Over 50 shocked adults and children looked on as the raging mother-of-two square up to her victim, Linda Webster, and rammed her forehead into her face.

The match was abandoned after the disgusting incident and the 29-year-old, from Condor Drive, in Arbroath, was later arrested.

The mother-of-two initially denied a charge of assault to injury despite the crowd of witnesses but she was found guilty of butting Mrs Websters face to her injury after a trial at Forfars Justice of the Peace Court and fined £250.

Her partner, Alexander Hutton, who ran on to the pitch and threatened to headbutt a players grandfather, was found guilty of abusive and threatening behaviour but his sentence was deferred for six months.

It is understood that the couple are no longer allowed to watch any childrens football matches.

Trouble flared at the match between Arbroath Lads Club and Arbroath Community Sports Club, at the towns Hercules Den playing fields, in February last year.

Witnesses told how Paterson - who works for Royal Mail - reacted badly when her son, who played for Arbroath Lads, was heavily tackled. Hutton, 32, also remonstrated with the referee and opposition parents and supporters.

He was found guilty of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause reasonable person to suffer fear or alarming that you did repeatedly walk onto the football pitch, repeatedly approach James Houghton in an aggressive manner, did repeatedly shout and did threaten to headbutt him.

Patersons victim declined to comment on the incident, but a close family member said: Linda just wants to put this all behind her. It was a horrible and nasty incident and something you dont expect at a childrens football match.

Last night Paterson tried to downplay the brutal and unprovoked attack denying it ever happened.

She said: Its all lies. Theyve all got together and backed each other up. Nothing happened. If there had been a lie detector involved, it would have come out who was lying, I can assure you of that.

A £250 fine? Is that all she got? Ffs she should have got jailed for that!

Acting like a thug in front of children is deplorable.

With any luck she'll lose her job.

Got off lightly due to the top she was wearing.

Thank fuck the Billy Boys wasn't sung or there would be serious time getting done.
