Ashley Young faces trial for speeding offence

FALL GUY: Ashley Young faces trial for speeding (PA)

PREMIER LEAGUE footballer Ashley Young has become well known for his diving antics on the pitch for Manchester United but the winger appears to have enjoyed life in the fast lane too much after being charged for speeding.

The 28-year-old player is set to stand trial for the offence after being accused of driving at 70mph in a 50mph zone on the M6 Toll near Curdworth, Warwickshire on March 7.

Young has denied the charges, which also include separate offences in which he is alleged to have failed to provide information about the identification of a driver.

He will stand trial at Leamington Spa Magistrates Court in January.
