One-time rising Northampton Town star Justin Georcelin is wanted by police after breaching conditions of his release from prison.

Georcelin, now 36, was a promising striker on Cobblers books while still a teenager in the late 1990s and early 2000s – and a cult star in video game Championship Manager, despite never playing a first-team game.

He was jailed in May 2006 following a series of violent robberies in which taxi drivers were threatened at knifepoint and hunted in 2017 after absconding from Springhill open prison near Aylesbury.
