SOLIHULL Moors on-loan goalkeeper Louie Moulden has donated all of his court compensation to the Solihull Moors Foundation – the club’s charitable arm.
The 20-year-old recently returned to parent club Wolverhampton Wanders after a six-month loan spell with Moors and was the victim of an assault during Solihull’s home fixture against Southend United on Saturday, August 13 2022.
Moulden was assaulted by Cameron Sparkes, aged 21, after the Shrimpers fan put his hands on the goalkeeper as he over-exuberantly celebrated a Southend goal on the pitch before being detained near the turnstiles.
Sparkes, of Southend Road, Stanford-le-Hope in Thurrock, Essex was sentenced to a community order, which included 100 hours of unpaid work, and was ordered to pay Mr Moulden £250 in compensation at a hearing at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday, December 19.
He previously admitted to assault by beating and going onto a playing area at a football match.
Moulden said: “When I learned of the outcome of the sentencing, I wanted to donate the compensation money to the important work of the Solihull Moors Foundation.
“They have been fundraising for the grief-stricken families of the Babbs Mill Lake boys. It’s a tragic story that touches the club and nation’s hearts.”
