FORMER Town defender Titus Bramble is to appear in court in Ipswich on alleged driving offences.

The 21-year-old, of Adderstone Court, Newcastle, is accused of three offences on January 11 this year allegedly committed on the A2 in Kent.

Bramble, whose case was mentioned at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court in Ipswich today, is accused of driving otherwise than in accordance with a driving licence and failure to produce a driving licence when requested. He is has also been summonsed for exceeding 70mph on the A2.

Newcastle star Bramble did not appear in court today and is believed to be in Tyneside on pre-season training. However he has been summonsed to appear before Ipswich magistrates on August 1.

Bramble made an instant impact when he made his league debut as a 17-year-old against Sheffield United in December 1998.

He was brought up on the Gainsborough estate and went to Holywells High School before fulfilling his dream of signing for his home-town club.

Bramble took little part in Town's promotion season of 1999-2000, but he won a place in the side from the start of the highly-successful first season in the Premiership.

However his injury jinx returned during the club's second season in top flight.

After Town were relegated Newcastle United boss Sir Bobby Robson, who had followed Bramble's progress with interest, took him to the north east for a fee of £4 million.

This could rise to £6 million if Bramble eventually gets a full England cap and remains clear of injury.

At St James Park Bramble linked up with another former Town star, Keiron Dyer.
