Former Hereford United striker Nathan Elder in court on driving charge
11:20am Thursday 21st June 2012 in Local News
A former Hereford United striker has paid the penalty after failing to identify who was driving his speeding car.
Nathan Elder’s Audi A5 was caught doing 36mph on the A465 Burley Gate to Bromyard Road on December 2 last year.
The legal limit is 30mph.
Elder, who did not appear at Hereford Magistrates for the case on Monday, failed to respond to letters asking him to identify the driver.
The striker, who scored three goals at Edgar Street last term in a season- long loan deal from Hayes and Yeading, sent a written guilty plea to the court, indicating that he is “currently looking for work and is unemployed”.
Six penalty points were added onto the 27-yearold’s driving licence and Elder, from Greenhithe, Kent, was ordered to pay a total of £185 in fines.
