Stanley striker, 26, facing GBH charge
ACCRINGTON Stanley striker Billy Kee has been charged with grievous bodily harm after an incident outside a nightclub.
The 26-year-old has been summoned to court along with Cardiff City player Lee Tomlin. It follows an alleged assault said to have occurred in Leicester on Sunday, January 22.
Janine Smith, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “The CPS has received a file of evidence from Leicestershire Police relating to an incident in the early hours of 22 January. Following a review of the evidence, the CPS has authorised the police to charge Lee Tomlin and Billy Kee with inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent.”
The pair are due to appear at Leicester magistrates court on September 18.
A Stanley club statement said: “Accrington Stanley are aware of the charges brought against Billy Kee, dating back to January this year.
“Billy will continue to be available for selection for Accrington Stanley. The club will not comment further on this incident at this time.”
Kee joined Stanley permanently from Scunthorpe in 2015 after spending a season on loan at the club in 2009-10.
