SUNDERLAND skipper Lee Cattermole has been ordered to reappear before magistrates.

The Black Cats’ captain did not appear at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court yesterday, where he is accused of vandalising five cars parked near to the Sports Direct Arena.

The case was adjourned until April 16.

Cattermole, 23, from Aislaby near Yarm, in Teesside, was accused alongside Sunderland’s Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner, but the case against the on-loan Arsenal man was dropped two weeks ago.

The charges relate to five cars that were allegedly damaged on December 6 last year in Stowell Street, in Newcastle city centre, close to NUFC’s ground.
