A Haverfordwest man has denied inflicting serious injuries on a local footballer.

Steven Shaun Dockerty, of Freemans View, Merlins Bridge, Haverfordwest, pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm without intent when he appeared at Haverfordwest magistrates court on Tuesday, March 19.

It is alleged that Dockerty, 27, maliciously inflicted GBH on Kristian Speake in Haverfordwest on February 10, 2018.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction to hear the case and Dockerty will next appear at Swansea crown court on April 18.

He was released on unconditional bail.
