FORMER Barnsley FC striker Neil Shipperley has been given a 12-month community order for flashing and performing a sex act in front of a mother and her teenage daughter.

Shipperley appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday for sentencing. He handed himself in to police immediately after the incident, which happened in London on September 17.

The prosecution said the ex-Red - who played 91 times for Barnsley from 1999 to 2001 - had been driving a white van when he stopped alongside the pair, who believed he was letting them across the road before they saw he was holding his penis in his hand.
