Former Blues’ star admits driving charges

DISCARDED Ipswich Town loanee Liam Rosenior is facing the possibility of losing his driving licence today after admitting two motoring offences.

The 25-year-old right back, who played in a total of 31 games for the Blues scoring one goal before his season-long loan spell ended earlier this month, is due to be sentenced at Lowestoft Magistrates’ Court.

Rosenior, whose address is given in court records as White Lodge Gardens, Kesgrave, pleaded guilty to using a motor vehicle without third party insurance at an earlier hearing.

He has also admitted driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

The former England Under-21 international pleaded guilty by post to both offences when his case came before Lowestoft magistrates for its first hearing on April 14.
