FORMER Ipswich Town star Jason Dozzell was today banned from driving for three years after he admitted drinking after watching the team play at Portman Road.

Dozzell, 40, of Larkhill Rise, Ipswich, was also fined £750 and ordered to pay £65 costs when he appeared before magistrates in Ipswich.

The offence occurred in the early hours of December 23 and the court was told that Dozzell had been to watch Ipswich play before meeting up with friends.

Dozzell was stopped by a police officer after he drove his silver Audi through a no entry sign at Cardinal Park.

Lesla Small, prosecuting, said Dozzell had 63 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The limit is 35.

District judge David Cooper was told that Dozzell had recently lost his job as manager of Leiston and he had separated from his wife.

The judge told Dozzell he had acted “grossly irresponsibly” and he would have to endure the humiliation of appearing for his second drink-drive offence.

Dozzell was banned for 12 months in 2004 when he failed to give a specimen of breath.
