The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A Peter­bor­ough man will stand trial over an al­leged as­sault in the city cen­tre. Ju­lian Spald­ing (45) of Hedge­lands, Peter­bor­ough, ap­peared at Cam­bridge Crown Court this week where he pleaded not guilty to as­sault­ing Gre­gory Stan­ley. The at­tack is said to have hap­pened out­side the Brew­ery Tap pub in the city cen­tre on Jan­uary 28 this year. Spald­ing en­tered not guilty pleas to one count of in­flict­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm, and one count of in­flict­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm with in­tent. The case was ad­journed by Judge Gareth Hawksworth for the trial, which is listed to start on Au­gust 20.

The court was told it is sched­uled to last for four days. Spald­ing was granted bail by the judge un­til the trial starts. Mr Stan­ley suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries in an in­ci­dent out­side the pub, and was placed in a med­i­cally in­duced coma. The foot­baller, who plays for Park­way FC in Peter­bor­ough and Oun­dle Town Foot­ball club, is now re­cov­er­ing from his in­juries.
