The breaking news on Thursday morning sees confirmation that Adam Johnson has lost his appeal.

He was attempting to challenge the conviction for ‘sexual activity with a schoolgirl’.

Currently serving a six year sentence, Johnson’s bid was turned down by three appeal judges.


‘Ex-England footballer Adam Johnson has lost a Court of Appeal challenge against his conviction for sexual activity with a schoolgirl.

The 29-year-old was jailed for six years last March for sexually touching and grooming the 15-year-old fan.

He was refused leave to appeal his conviction and sentence in July, but launched a second bid late last year.

A panel of three appeal judges turned down the former Sunderland player’s latest bid.’

  • Damon Horner

    Man is no longer relevant in life anymore, never mind in football, never mind to Newcastle!

  • Steve Smith

    Not relevant to us.

    Might as well throw up an article on Jimmy Saville. He doesn’t play for Newcastle United either.

    Typical of the scummy mag to bring up this article. What has it got to do with newcastle? You’re as bad as the sun!

      “Scummy mag”. Really? If it’s scummy, then why are you reading this, nevermind bothering to write a comment.

    I suppose you could argue that it`s relevant because if he`d won his appeal he would have been free to go back to Sunlun and play again. You would imagine they wouldn`t touch him because of the trouble and embarrassment he caused them but they ARE desperate and he WAS a good player (on his day – which was usually aganst us). The guy`s lost and he`s got what he deserves and we should just forget about him now.
