Nic Cruwys Sentencing
Wolves have today welcomed the convictions of a group who committed an horrific attack on Watford supporter Nic Cruwys after a match at Molineux in March of last year.
Four men and two juveniles pleaded guilty to the attack on Nic, which took place as he walked with friends from Molineux towards Wolverhampton Railway Station after the fixture.
Five of the group have received a variety of sentences in relation to the appalling and unprovoked assault, as well as also receiving football banning orders of various lengths.
Sentencing on the sixth defendant has been adjourned to a later date as he was not legally represented.
With the legal process almost complete, Wolves can today confirm that all six individuals are banned from Molineux for life following their involvement in the attack.
Wolves are pleased that those involved have been brought to justice, and would like to thank those people that came forward with their witness accounts which helped to build up a picture of events.
Nic suffered life-changing neurological damage as a result of the sustained assault, spending three months in hospital and a rehabilitation centre, before returning home where he continues to receive treatment on a regular basis.
The club were in contact with West Midlands Police, Watford Football Club and Nic’s wife Jodie shortly following the attack, and will continue to provide whatever support possible in the future.
Nic will never fully recover from the injuries sustained, but it is hoped that knowing that those involved have been brought to justice will provide some relief to him and his family as they try to move on and put the horrific events of that day behind them.
The best wishes of everyone at Wolves remain with Nic, Jodie and their two young children.
