A Championship footballer has been fined £1,350 after hitting a nightclub doorman with his girlfriend's handbag in Plymouth last November.

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm and a public order offence outside the Candy Store club.

The court heard Greg Smith, 37, suffered a 3in (7.6cm) cut to his head. The former Plymouth Argyle player was told he was of previous good character and given credit for pleading guilty.

The 22-year-old striker, of Renaissance Gardens, Plymouth, was a member of the Plymouth Argyle squad at the time of the incident.

He was ejected from the Candy Store with friends at about 0400 GMT on 11 November and an argument started on the pavement outside.

Prosecuting barrister David Gittins said CCTV footage showed Ebanks-Blake holding "something over his head" which he hit the doorman with.

He said: "It was his girlfriend's handbag. Having been ejected from the club there was a fracas. We do not know what was in the handbag.

"There was a two to three inch cut on the man's head."

At Plymouth Crown Court, Judge Francis Gilbert QC said he was a man of previous good character and gave him credit for pleading guilty.

Ebanks-Blake was also ordered to pay compensation of £500 and prosecution costs of £650.
