HUDDERSFIELD TOWN chairman Dean Hoyle has described Adam Hammill’s actions as ‘out of character’.
Mr Hoyle said winger Hammill was ‘very remorseful’ for the attack outside a bar in Liverpool city centre, on October 7.
Hammill, who is on loan at Town from Wolverhampton Wanderers , yesterday pleaded guilty to assaulting two female paramedics at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court. He will be sentenced next Tuesday.
Mr Hoyle said Town had taken a tough stance against Hammill and had fined him.
Hoyle said: “He’s very remorseful and upset with himself. It’s out of character.
He added: “But we’re taking a tough stance.
“Everyone makes mistakes. I’m not trying to defend his actions.”
Asked what further action the club would take against Hammill, Hoyle said: “It’s a really tough one. It’s not helping if you send him back but people are saying: ‘send him back’.
“But at the same time it’s about being remorseful. He’s been in contact with the paramedics.”
