The trial of two men accused of assault will take place in July.

Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing yesterday were Peter McGauley, 31, of Pertwees Court, Colchester, and Anthony Coupland, 26, of Mumford Road, West Bergholt.

Both defendants pleaded not guilty to assaulting Mark Pettican causing him actual bodily harm on September 3 last year.

McGauley also pleaded not guilty to assaulting Leanne Connors by beating and threatening to damage windows belonging to Tracey Queen on the same date.

Coupland also denied driving while disqualified.

The case was adjourned for a four day trial which will take place during a two week warned list commencing July 16.

Both defendants are on conditional bail.
