A STEVENAGE train guard who was assaulted by Paul Gascoigne has said today (Monday) that he accepts the ex-footballer’s apology.
This morning Gascoigne pleaded guilty to assaulting Jack Sherrington while he was on duty at Stevenage Railway Station on the evening of July 4.
In a statement released through the British Transport Police, Mr Sherrington, who is 23 and from Peterborough, said: “I am grateful for and welcome Mr Gascoigne’s decision to plead guilty today. I am told that since the incident he has offered his apologies for his behaviour, and I fully accept them.
“In differing ways this has not been easy for either of us and I sincerely hope he gets the help that he needs in the future.
“With the conclusion of the case, and Mr Gascoigne’s sentencing, I now consider this matter closed. I will not be conducting any interviews at this time and ask for my privacy in this regards to be respected.”
