Bill Maybury lashed out at friends during night out at Cameo club

Bournemouth Echo: SENTENCED: Billy Maybury, who assaulted two men SENTENCED: Billy Maybury, who assaulted two men

A FOOTBALLER knocked a man unconscious in a “vicious attack” at a Bournemouth nightspot, a court heard.

Billy Maybury, of Poole Road in Westbourne, lashed out at friends Alexander Gill and Adam Wilson after an evening in nightclub Cameo last November.

The Wimborne Town player then attempted to leave the scene, but was detained by bouncers until police could arrive.

Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court heard on Friday that the 20-year-old approached both men on the dance floor of the club in Fir Vale Road at around 3.30am.

Prosecutor Heather Jackson said: “After a short discussion, he head-butted Mr Gill to the face, causing him immediate pain.

“He then punched Mr Wilson, causing him to fall to the ground and become unconscious.”

Although both of the victims recovered from their injuries, they were left with bruising and pain, Ms Jackson said.

Initially, Maybury told the court he was not guilty of two counts of assault by beating.

However, he changed his plea last month, and told magistrates he was “sorry” for the attack. “There has been a mistake made here,” he said. “No one deserves what I did. I acted prematurely to the situation and I’m sorry about it.”

Chairman of the magistrates, Alan Belbin, sentenced Maybury to a 12-month supervision order, and 125 hours of community service to be completed in the next six months, as well as £570 in costs.

“This was an unprovoked and particularly vicious attack,” he told the defendant.

“It is so serious we have to make a community order.”

.
Odd how all these scumbag thugs suddenly become apologetic after inflicting pain and injury, the sole purpose of which is to receive a lighter sentence, pity he didn't think of the consequences before getting rat faced.
The only winners in these cases seem to be the courts when awarding court costs, it about time the courts awarded large sums of money to the victims of these animals.

The incident was in November...it's a bit concerning if he's still hungover seven months later. Or do you think he hasn't learnt his lesson at all and has continued to get drunk despite the trouble it's got him in previously?

From the Non-League Football section on 12 May:

"Goalkeeper Jason Harvell and winger Jamie Davidson are also contracted for next season, while the club have announced that Billy Maybury, George Webb and Adam Costello are committed to signing."

I wonder if Wimborne Town will rethink this - maybe his community service should be scheduled for Saturday afternoons and Tuesday evenings, which will have the added benefit of depriving him of his football wages.

PS I bet Billy's "premature" at one activity.

It will be interesting to see if the Magpies set a good example sack/release Maybury for bringing their club into disrepute. However, back in February (when they would have been aware of the case) they put this on their website:

"Billy is staying! 24th February 2014

Wimborne Town chairman Paul Miller has moved to scotch rumours that defender Billy Maybury is to be released by the football club. “Billy Maybury has never been asked to leave the club,” insisted the Magpies chief. “In fact Billy is pondering a new contract is an integral part of Steve Cuss’ plans for the 2014-15 campaign.”

Hmmmmm..............

What a load of rubbish "you can see it in his eyes". Have you got a third eye that gives you clairvoyance to know how some one is or behaves. Or is it a case of "you don't like the look of him, he's a wrong'un I can tell"? If any of what you think or say was true the police would always find the guilty as they look guilty and look wrong.

It's amazing how wrong you all can be about a person. Yes Billy has done wrong and nobody knows it more than billy himself, he's a nice guy, who had far too much to drink and handled a situation in the wrong way, a quick learning curve for a young lad, now rightfully so he has to pay the price for his wrong doing which he will do. Some of your comments however are laughable, probably need to get out in the real world a bit more

Knowing the Maybury family, i for one as well as many others know he is not a 'chav' nor a compulsively violent criminal. This here is the case of a young lad who went on a night out like every other teenager, but got himself into a situation he undoubtedly regrets sober lie many others (obviously not so serious). He has admitted his wrong doing and has apologised and he has to pay the price of this and is doing so, living with the regret for the rest of his life. He was never a bad child and still isn't, finished school, good grades, good upbringing and had a brilliant future ahead of him. So please, 1 mad stupid moment does not need this abuse or assumptions from people with nothing better to do than sit behind a computer screen, why not focus on the real criminals of Verwood leave them with the abusive comments and assumptions as they are the ones who deserve this not him. I can also vouch he is not a 'foreigner'.

All violent offences should go to court with a mandatory jail sentence. That does not mean I would like to see him locked up for years, but I think six months would be appropriate in this case.
