Man City and England star Jack Grealish fined for speeding in 30mph zone

England and Manchester City footballer Jack Grealish has been fined for speeding in a 30mph zone.

Grealish did not attend the four-minute hearing at Worcester Magistrates' Court and pleaded guilty through his barrister.

The attacking midfielder and winger was fined £666 for speeding at 44mph in July last year.

The 28-year-old was ordered to pay £110 in court costs and a victim surcharge of £266, leaving him with a total bill of £1,042.

He was also handed five penalty points.

Grealish's barrister, John Dye, said: "I am asked to apologise on his behalf. It was a mistake."

The court was told Grealish was caught speeding by a mobile speed camera on Station Road, Wythall, Worcestershire, while driving a Range Rover Sport on the morning of 17 July 2023.

A charge of failing to give information to the police relating to the identification of the driver was withdrawn.

Mr Dye, said: "Mr Grealish means no discourtesy by not attending.

"I am instructed to enter a guilty plea on his behalf in relation to speeding."

After confirming the maximum penalty for the offence was £1,000, reduced to £666 after a guilty plea, Mr Dye told the court: "He can afford to pay that figure."

The court was told Grealish had a full, clean driving licence at the time of the speeding offence.
