IPSWICH Town legend Alan Brazil has spoken of his growing frustration over a lengthy legal battle after his drink-driving trial was adjourned for the seventh time.

IPSWICH Town legend Alan Brazil has spoken of his growing frustration over a lengthy legal battle after his drink-driving trial was adjourned for the seventh time.

Brazil is estimated to have spent thousands of pounds fighting the allegations which date back to last September following an incident on the Ipswich bound A14 at Woolpit, near Bury St Edmunds.

The Scottish international had already pleaded not guilty to drink driving and arrived at Sudbury Magistrates Court yesterday expecting to have his trial heard.

But he faced further frustration when the case was adjourned at the last minute due to the unavailability of a police witness.

Outside the Sudbury court, Brazil said: “This is the seventh time this case has appeared in court and the fifth time I have attended. I came here thinking this is the last time and it is frustrating. I now just want it to be over and done with.”

The case was adjourned until next Tuesday at Bury magistrates court when a new trial date is set to be fixed.
