Sheffield United’s Rhian Brewster cleared of assaulting fan during pitch invasion
A FOOTIE ace accused of assaulting a fan during a pitch invasion had the charges against him dropped yesterday.
Sheffield United’s Rhian Brewster, 22, was among players and staff confronted by thousands of Nottingham Forest supporters on May 17.
They stormed on after their penalty shoot-out win in the Championship play-off semi-final.
Blades striker Billy Sharp, 36, was headbutted.
Brewster was later accused of assaulting George Brinkley, 26.
But the charge was dropped following a review, Nottingham magistrates’ court heard.
A common assault case against Brewster’s fellow striker Oli McBurnie, 26, is also being reviewed.
His case was adjourned until August 4.
