Man, 23, bailed over ‘attack’ as ex Dundee youth player remains in hospital

Man, 23, bailed over ‘attack’ as ex Dundee youth player remains in hospital

A man has appeared in court charged in connection with the alleged assault of a former Dundee FC development player.

Robert Chambers, of Dundee, was arrested over the alleged attack and appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday.

During a brief private hearing on petition, he faced a single charge of assault to severe injury and danger of life.

The 23-year-old made no plea and the case was continued for further examination.

Chambers was released on bail ahead of further court dates being set.

Emergency services were called to Old Hawkhill in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police cordoned off an area and placed a tent in the middle of the road while they carried out their investigations.

John Black, 20, was taken to Ninewells Hospital with serious injuries after he was found unconscious by paramedics.

John’s mum June asked people online to keep her son in their prayers, saying that he was on life support.

A source close to the family told the Tele he is currently still in hospital, in a serious but stable condition.

 

John previously played for Dundee FC’s development team.

John Black made his Dundee debut against Crystal Palace in the Julian Speroni testimonial match

A spokesman for the club said: “We have been made aware of the situation and our thoughts at this time are with John and his family. We are hoping he makes a speedy recovery.

“John was a popular member of the development squad during his time here.”

John left the club in the summer of 2016.

He was a midfielder and his only first team appearance came in Julian Speroni’s testimonial against Crystal Palace in May 2015.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland’s Tayside Division said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 23-year-old man has been charged in connection with a serious assault which happened in the early hours of Sunday October 8 at Old Hawkhill, Dundee.”

A Scottish Ambulance spokeswoman said: “We found an unconscious male bleeding from the head and took him to Ninewells Hospital.”
