Stokes, who is accused of assaulting and injuring an Elvis impersonator in a Dublin nightclub, was released on bail, with no conditions, and ordered to appear again before the court on May 29.

The incident is alleged to have happened on June 8 last year, several hours after an international between Ireland and the Faroe Islands at the Aviva Stadium.

Stokes was first arrested by Gardai (Irish police) and questioned in relation to the incident in August last year. He had been released without charge at the time and a police file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, who decided to prosecute him.

Dublin District Court heard he was arrested - by arrangement - on Chancery Street in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.

The Republic of Ireland striker was officially charged with assault causing harm, under section three of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act 1997.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
