Goodison post protester bailed
Thursday 02 February 2012
The protester who brought Everton's match against Manchester City to a standstill on Tuesday by handcuffing himself to a goalpost has been charged by police.
John Joseph Foley, 46, of Southport, was charged with going on to the playing area during a match and has been bailed.
Darron Gibson, who scored his first Everton goal in the 1-0 win – and said it "means that bit more" to have helped his former club Manchester United's title push at City's expense – has welcomed the chance to play regularly.
"It is nice to know I've got a chance of playing every week," the midfielder said, "rather than knowing I haven't got a chance to be playing to be honest!"
