Drink-driving footballers told they brought 'shame on club' as they avoid jail

Two Derby County footballers were told they have brought "shame upon yourselves, your family, your profession and your club" after they admitted drink-driving over a crash which left a team-mate seriously injured.

Wales international Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett were ordered to do 180 hours of unpaid work and were disqualified from driving for two years by a district judge at Derby Magistrates' Court, who said he had considered jailing the pair.
