Nat Kerr jailed for assault on the pitch

This landed in my in tray this morning from Greater Manchester Police

"Sunday League footballer who intentionally broke an opponent’s leg before subjecting him to a tirade of abuse has been jailed.

Nathaniel James Kerr (born 31/10/1987) of HMP Forest Bank pleaded guilty to Section 20 assault at Minshull Street Crown Court.

Today, Wednesday 30 September 2015, he was jailed for one year.

On Sunday 31 August 2014, the 30-year-old victim got involved in a verbal argument with an opposing player in the early stages of a Sunday League football match on Jackson’s Lane, Hazel Grove.

Moments later the victim played the ball and from some distance away Kerr ran towards him, jumped into the air and in a ‘long jump’ motion brought both feet stamping down on the victim’s outstretched leg.

As the 30-year-old rolled around in agony with his leg fractured in multiple places, Kerr pointed at his teammate and shouted: “I’ve done this ‘cos of you!”

The victim was taken to hospital, where he remained for several weeks undergoing extensive reconstructive surgery.

Constable Louise Spencer said: “This injury has had a catastrophic effect on the victim’s life, meaning he has been unable to work or support his young family.

“He is self-employed and the injury meant he was forced to rely on the kindness of his teammates, who arranged fundraisers and charity events to provide the financial support he needed.

“All the while Kerr has shown absolutely no remorse for his vicious attack, calling the victim a ‘wimp’ and verbally abusing him as he was lying in agony on the pitch.

“The subsequent investigation and conviction into this assault demonstrates that this kind of aggression and thuggery during sporting fixtures will not be tolerated by Greater Manchester Police.”

I was listening to the victim on the radio. He has lost his business and has a permanent metal pin holding his ankle together.
Kerr is and always was a nasty piece of work and this comes as no surprise at all. I hope on his release he gets a life ban from playing football as his victim will never play again.

i saw this and really couldn't believe some of the comments coming from people that say they knew him, saying he was a lovely mild mannered guy and always a gentleman beggars belief, he was always a sending off waiting to happen for us and had real anger issues.
Life time ban wouldn't be enough for this idiot and good riddance from the game we all go to watch or participate in.
No room in it for this idiot.
