Ex Gills keeper found not guilty of brandishing sword

By Jenna Dobbs

Former Gills keeper Stephen Bywater has been found not guilty of swinging a sword above the heads of two delivery men.

The 36-year-old was accused of brandishing the weapon during an altercation at his home in Nether Alderney, Cheshire, last year.

He denied the offence and was cleared at Chester Crown Court today - two days before his birthday.
