King's Lynn Town footballer re-bailed in drug supply conspiracy case
A King's Lynn Town footballer is set to return to court next month over an alleged drug supply conspiracy.
Rory McAuley, who was suspended indefinitely by his club in June, faces charges of conspiracy to supply a class A drug and possession of criminal property.
The 31-year-old, of George Fox Way, Norwich, appeared before the city's crown court this afternoon, where he was conditionally bailed for a further hearing on October 6.
His co-accused, Ismail Thompson, 29, of Harsnett Close, Norwich, was also bailed to that date, charged with conspiracy to supply a class A drug.
Stephen Spence, prosecuting, said a further adjournment was jointly sought following discussions between the Crown and defence advocates for both men.
The court was also told that a third defendant who has now been charged in relation to the case was not at the hearing after being mistakenly advised he did not need to attend.
Mr Spence added that charges may also be brought against a fourth person.
