TWO men who kicked and stamped on their victim in a town centre attack have been warned they face jail.

Adam Paul Brook, 29, and Matthew Brown, 21, left another man unconscious after the assault, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting, said the incident started on Wellington Street when Brook punched the man in the face.

The victim was chased by both men towards Peel Square.

She added: "Mr Brown tripped up the victim. While he was on the floor, Mr Brook stamped on the victim's head.

"Three or four kicks by one of the defendants left the victim unconscious. He was still unconscious when a nurse out in the town centre arrived at the scene."

Mrs Lowery-Green said the victim, who was taken to Barnsley Hospital, suffered minor head injuries.

Gerard Casey, representing Brook, and Gus Kennedy, representing Brown, reserved the right to put the defence case later.

District Judge John Foster said jail must be considered.

He said he did not rule out sending the two men to Sheffield Crown Court for sentencing.

Brook, of Manse Farm Mews, Pontefract Road, Cudworth, and Brown, of Pinehall Drive, Monk Bretton, admitted affray.

Their case was adjourned until January 31 and they were granted conditional bail.
