Former Liverpool FC footballer Adam Hammill pleads guilty to attacking two women paramedics

A FORMER Liverpool FC youth player Adam Hammill admitted attacking two women paramedics.
Hammill, 24, of Hall Road East, Bootle, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault when he appeared before Liverpool Magistrates Court yesterday.
The footballer, who is currently on loan to Championship team Huddersfield Town, from Wolverhampton Wanderers, was arrested after the assault outside the Revolution bar in Temple Court in the early hours of the morning on October 7.
Amanda Haycock, prosecuting, said ambulance staff Sky Armstrong and Tracy Northey had been called out to the scene because Hammill was unconscious but when they attempted to put him in a wheelchair he became aggressive.
Miss Haycock said: “He hit out catching Miss Northey on the nose, spat blood at them and tried to bite them.”
She said police officers called to the scene to assist the women heard Hammill verbally abuse them and could smell alcohol on him.
She said: “Despite appearing extremely drunk, he had a very strong grip and was difficult to restrain.
“With the help of colleagues who had arrived to assist he was placed in the rear of the ambulance as he needed medical treatment and officers were trying to dodge Mr Hammill's mouth as he tried to bite those around him.”
She said he was handcuffed and had to be “pinned down” to the bed in the ambulance to be restrained. Miss Northey was described as “shaken, shocked and angered” by what happened.
Hammill was released on bail and the case was adjourned for sentencing until next Tuesday.
A spokesman for Huddersfield Town said: “Adam has already been subject to an internal disciplinary procedure at the club, but we will revisit any possible further action when the legal process has been concluded.”
Hammill, who formed part of LFC’s 2006 FA Youth Cup winning side, started his career at Liverpool’s Youth Academy and played for both the youth and reserve teams during his time at Anfield.
He signed for Wanderers in January last year and was loaned to Huddersfield in August.
