BREAKING: Birmingham fan fined for sending ‘sick’ tweets about Jack Grealish’s late brother

Alfie Perkins, Birmingham City fan, has been fined £120 and ordered to pay £200 for court costs for his offensive tweets towards Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish and his family.

The incident happened during the derby day in March, when Grealish scored the only goal for Lions to win the away match.

Aston Villa captain has been then attacked by 27-year-old Birmingham City fan Paul Mitchell, who was jailed for 14 weeks.

Perkins, 19, has written several offensive tweets, one of which was about Grealish’s brother Keelan Grealish, who died in tragic circumstances as a baby.

“He may have scored but will never bring his dead brother back and that brings me more satisfaction than anything else ever could.” Perkins wrote back then.
