TWO footballers from Kelty have admitted an attack on a man during a night out in Dublin.

Montrose players Liam Callaghan and Craig Johnston, who are both 27, appeared in court in the Irish capital on Monday.

Callaghan, of Lime Park Crescent in Kelty, pleaded guilty to assault causing harm and obstructing a police officer in Ely Place, Dublin, on December 8, 2019.

Johnston, of Mossgreen Street in Kelty, admitted the same charges.

They will return to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on January 20 next year for sentencing.

At a previous court hearing the cousins, who both played previously for Cowdenbeath, had been forced to lodge €1,000 each in bail payments.
