Mother of England and Manchester City star Phil Foden fined for being drunk and disorderly

The mother of Premier League footballer Phil Foden has been fined after a drunken night out.

Claire Rowlands was handed the £100 penalty for being drunk and disorderly during a hearing at Llandudno Magistrates' Court in North Wales on Tuesday.

It comes following an incident outside Bentley's nightclub in Towyn, Conwy, in the early hours of 9 September 2023.

In a video of the incident played in court, the 44-year-old can be heard saying: "What have I done? Don't come into my face unless you've got evidence."

She is then seen walking away from the premises, as several people can be heard shouting and arguing.

A male voice, thought to be a policeman, can also be heard saying "calm down".

Rowlands, of Prestbury, Macclesfield, previously entered a guilty plea on 22 November last year.

She was found not guilty of a charge of assault by beating related to the same evening.

It comes as Foden, who plays as a midfielder for England and Manchester City, prepares for his club side's visit to Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night.
