MAGISTRATES adjourned the case against the captain of Sunderland, who is accused of vandalising five cars close to the home of his club's arch-rivals.

Black Cats skipper Lee Cattermole did not appear before Newcastle Magistrates' Court where he faced five charges of criminal damage.

The case will be brought back before the same court on April 16.

Cattermole, 23, from Aislaby near Yarm, Teesside, was accused alongside Sunderland's Danish striking star Nicklas Bendtner, but the case against the on-loan Arsenal man was dropped a fortnight ago.

The charges relate to five cars which were allegedly damaged on December 6 last year in Stowell Street, close to Newcastle United's St James' Park.
