AN OFFSHORE apprentice who glassed a man in the face after a disagreement over football was sent to a young offenders' institution for 16 months.

Benjamin Darcy, 19, was out drinking in Great Yarmouth on March 23 when he attacked Ashley Evans who suffered cuts to his head and nose.

Norwich Crown Court heard on Thursday that Darcy, of West Avenue, Gorleston, who admitted unlawful wounding, now faced losing his apprenticeship.

Judge Alasdiar Darroch told him: “This was a very typical case of a young man having too much to drink and getting involved in an argument and bottling someone in the face. People who do that have to lose their liberty.”
