Coach put on bond

The action was hot on and off the field when a football coach and a goalkeeper came to blows on Sunday.

The aggressor, football coach Corey Kemar Barrow, will have to keep the peace for at least six months or he could find himself facing six weeks in prison.

Barrow, 34, of Laynes Road, Clapham, St Michael, admitted in the District “A” Magistrates Court yesterday that having lawfully entered the Wildey AstroTurf on Sunday, he misconducted himself by behaving in a threatening manner. He also confessed he assaulted Jamal Moore on the same date, and occasioned him actual bodily harm.

Sorry for behaviour

“I apologise for my behaviour,” he told the court.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant placed the first-time offender on a bond for six months. If he breaches it, he will have to pay $750 forthwith or spend six weeks in prison.

Prosecutor Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim said there was a football game at the AstroTurf in which Barrow was the coach of one team, while Moore was the goalkeeper of the opposing side.

Around 10:15 p.m., the two got into an argument and Barrow armed himself with a beer bottle, which he threw at Moore.

He jumped the fence and went on to the playing area, which was restricted. He took up two rocks and threw them at the goalkeeper. One of them missed, but the other struck the ’keeper on the hand. (HLE)
