Kerry Dixon, 53, the fromer Chelsea striker, is in prison. He’s serving nine months for punching and kicking 38-year-old Ben Scoble in Dunstable’s Nag’s Head pub.

Judge Barbara Mensah told Luton Crown Court:

“It was quite clear from the CCTV footage we have seen that you were. the aggressor. Out of the blue you knocked him from the stool and continued to pummel him on the ground. It was clear to me where you were hitting him was about the head.”

Judge Mensah was not interested in Dixon’s claim that Mr Scoble called him ‘Fatso’ and was sat at ‘his seat’ at the bar.

The Mail looks back at a sorry tale. Dixon was a very good footballer good enough to play for England 8 times.
