A FORMER Barnsley FC striker will appear for trial later this month having been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
Steven Bennett, 28, who played several games for the Reds in 2010 and 2011, was driving a HGV during the multi-vehicle crash in Warrington on September 19 last year, according to prosecutors.
Angela Wong, 56, died at the scene and her 62-year-old husband Richard died later in hospital.
Bennett, who is originally from Grimethorpe, appeared at Chester Magistrates’ Court last Friday and entered a not guilty plea.
He will next appear at Chester Crown Court for trial on August 28.
