Norwich manager Hughton fined over driving offence

The former Birmingham City boss appeared in court on Monday charged with a speeding offence which took place in February and has also been given six points on his licence
Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has been fined £1,615 after being found guilty of failing to name the driver of his car when it was caught speeding.

The new Canaries boss appeared in court on Wednesday morning to answer charges after his car was seen exceeding the speed limit in Solihull in the West Midlands in February.

The 53-year-old argued that his wife or son could have been driving the vehicle at the time of the offence but has been given six points on his license as well as being ordered to pay a £1,000 fine, £600 in court costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

7/2 Norwich City are 7/2 with William Hill to score in the first 15 minutes against QPR
Hughton took charge of the East Anglia outfit in June, replacing Aston Villa-bound Paul Lambert, after helping Birmingham City to fourth in the Championship last season.

However, his return to the Premier League got off to a poor start as Norwich were beaten 5-0 by Fulham on the opening day of the season.
