A SUFFOLK woman today pleaded guilty to stealing money from a football club.

Carol Curling admitted taking the money from Wickham Market Football Club between July 1, 2003 and September 8, 2004.

At an earlier hearing the amount she had taken was estimated at between £3,000-£5,000.

The 39-year-old, of Simon's Cross, Wickham Market, who was a volunteer treasurer for the club, wore a beige blouse, grey trousers and black shoes when she appeared at Ipswich Crown Court.

During the pleas and directions hearing she spoke only to confirm her name and to enter her plea.

Andrew Shaw, mitigating, said his client had a written basis of plea, which he handed up to Judge John Holt.
