Football boss puts on a sub to do his community service
By Miles Godfrey


A football club boss faces jail after getting a substitute to carry out his community service.

Azwar Majeed, the Porsche-driving owner of Crawley Town Football Club, sent a lackie to carry out the 60 hours of unpaid work he got for an assault.

Danny Ullah, 29, one of Majeed's staff, spent his time pottering around gardens and clearing weeds under the eye of probation officers while the football club boss had his feet up.

The two men agreed to the con after Majeed, 31, from Dyke Road, Brighton, was sentenced to do the work in June 2005.

Faced with the prospect of running his numerous businesses, which include the bar Ja Vu in North Street, Brighton and Ja Ja Bar, Crawley, along with the football club, Majeed and Ullah swapped identities and Majeed gave the court Ullah's address.

By the time the deception came to light, Ullah, 29, from Seaview Avenue, Peacehaven, had carried out seven sessions - almost all of the 60 hours of unpaid work.

Yesterday at Hove Crown Court both men were warned they faced jail sentences after admitting perverting the course of justice.

The court heard Majeed was sentenced to 60 hours community service after he was convicted of common assault in June 2005.

The deception was not discovered until September 2005.

Jeffrey Lamb, defending Majeed, told the court his client was currently subject to another community service order.

Majeed was given 90 hours for punching and smashing the jaw of 18-year-old Martin Grainger outside a chip shop in Worthing in September 2005.

He has still to complete 76 hours of the work but the order has been suspended because of injuries he suffered when he crashed his yellow Porsche 911 on the A23 at Pyecombe in January.

Judge Cedric Joseph adjourned sentence until September 21.

He told the defendants: "The overwhelming probability is a custodial sentence." The two men were released on bail.

Majeed and his brother Chas have variously hit the headlines for their running of Crawley Town Football Club, which has suffered major financial troubles for the last three seasons.

It entered administration last season, a situation it has only just emerged from.

The Majeed brothers were also in hot water after a mass brawl outside Ja Vu bar, then called Saqqara.

Police closed the bar and criticised its management shortly afterwards.

A Spokesman for Sussex Probation Area said "As Azwar Majeed's case is adjourned for the Probation Service to prepare a report it would be inappropriate to comment at this stage of proceedings".

Azwar Majeed refused to comment yesterday.

Hence his resgination from the Board and the reasoning behind him not needing his flat for the foreseeable future!!!

Given this sentance today

Speeding striker jailed for lying


A Stoke City footballer who claimed his stepfather was at the wheel when he was clocked doing 103mph in his Mercedes has been jailed for four months.

Vincent Pericard, 24, admitted perverting the course of justice at Plymouth Crown Court.

The former Juventus and Portsmouth striker was caught on the A38 near Plymouth last March.

The Cameroon-born player was charged after his stepfather Jack told police he had not been in the UK since 2003.

Officers had tracked his stepfather down after letters were sent to him at an address in France.

Pericard, who has twice been disqualified from driving for previous speeding offences, was sent further letters, to which he did not reply.

Eventually one said the picture of him speeding was taken from in front of the car and revealed the driver.

Vincent Pericard was on loan at Plymouth Argyle at the time

In December, he sent a statement to police saying he had made a mistake and apologised for any inconvenience, but was later arrested.

The court heard Pericard earned

There's nothing the judiciary hate more than perverting the course of justice.

I reckon his time has come.

I am really disappointed everyone is dissing Azwar like this.

I am sure the court will take into account that the FA have already found him a fit and proper person.

I think the criminal justice system has an agenda against CTFC....

In the last two years... two charges of assault, one of deception... this is the man who OWNS our football club...

His brother - who the FA consider to be "unfit & improper" to be involved in the running of a football club... RUNS our football club.

But apparently what you need to worry about is me... I am a *beep*-stirrer.. and worse... only the gutless scum haven't got the bottle to make their evil lying allegations in public..!

Another proud day in the clubs history!

IMHO these are the important quotes:

Quote:
"You were looking to escape - it was a deliberate plan of dishonesty," he told Pericard.

"I regard doing an act intending to pervert the course of public justice as serious.

"You cannot buy yourself out of the consequences."

But don't worry, Az is calling Cheaty McFraud as a character witness Laughing

I've heard that going to prison can give you a sore bottom. Just in case anyone about to go to jail is reading this, can anyone give him some advice as to how to avoid this condition?

As much as I would love to agree - having seen a few recent sentances in... the media, We'll be lucky. Odds on a fine and further increased c.s order ?

Just a guess??
