Newcastle defender called up for jury service

Have your say

A NORTH East football star will appear in court next month – for jury service.

Newcastle United defender James Perch had booked a holiday to Dubai, but will now be doing his civic duty.

“I’ve got jury service, unless I can be excused,” said the 26-year-old.

“It’s killed my holiday a bit, but at the minute I’m set to be in court at the end of May.”
