Manchester City star Jack Grealish has been fined for speeding in 30mph zone, it has been revealed.

During a hearing at Worcester Magistrates’ Court yesterday (8 May), where the Manchester City and England midfielder pleaded guilty, the court was told that Grealish was caught speeding by a mobile speed camera on Station Road, in the Wythall area of Worcestershire, while driving a Range Rover Sport on the morning of 17 July 2023.

The 28-year-old – who was said to have had a full, clean driving licence at the time of the speeding offence – was caught driving at 44mph in a 30mph zone.

After pleading guilty through his barrister at the hearing, of which he did not attend, the Birmingham-born footballer has been fined £666 for speeding, ordered to pay £110 in court costs, and a victim surcharge of £266 – which leaves him with a total bill of £1,042.

He was also handed five penalty points for the speeding offence.


A charge of failing to give information to the police relating to the identification of the driver, however, was withdrawn.

Grealish’s barrister, John Dye, explained that the sports star “means no discourtesy by not attending” the hearing yesterday, according to Sky News and BBC News reports, and that he was “instructed to enter a guilty plea in relation to speeding” on Grealish’s behalf.
