A Premiership footballer who lives in Woodford Green will have to rely on public transport after being caught speeding at almost 100mph on the A11.

Kyle Naughton, 23, of The Manor, who is currently on loan to Norwich City from Tottenham Hotspur, was caught twice last year breaking the speed limit in Norfolk while driving in his Audi.

The right-back was banned from driving for 15 months at Norwich Magistrates Court yesterday.

He told the court he had since sold the Audi after being caught speeding three times previously and was now using public transport to visit his family in Sheffield.

Naughton was snapped on August 19 travelling at 53mph in a 30mph zone on the B1113 near Swardeston at 10.15pm.

On November 19, he was caught on the A11 near Wymondham travelling at 96mph in a 70mph zone at 3.50pm.

Naughton, who admitted both offences, said: “I just wanted to say sorry.

“I got rid of the car as soon as I started picking up points.”

On top of the driving ban, he was fined £660 and given six points for the August offence. He was fined £900 and given five points for the November offence.
