Beckford apologises after fracas
Preston North End striker Jermaine Beckford has taken to social media platform Instagram to apologise for his fight with team-mate Eoin Doyle during the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Beckford and Doyle were sent-off in the 90th minute of the game after pushing and shoving one another.
The pair clashed after Doyle played a pass to Marnick Vermijl, one which Beckford should have gone to him.
On his Instagram account jermainebecks83, Beckford posted: “Nobody’s perfect. Yesterday, I let my passion for the game overtake my awareness of my responsibility as a role modeal and a professional which I take very seriously.
“I sincerely apologise to the fans, particularly the younger fans, the manager and Preston North End which is such a fantastic club which I’m honoured to play for.
“Please accept my apologies.
“Focus on all the goals so far and all that I intend to score in the very near future.”
