FORMER Wigan Warriors star Martin Aspinwall has appeared in court on two driving charges.

The 29-year-old, of Stirling Avenue, Ince, appeared before Wigan Magistrates’ Court, charged with driving a car when above the legal alcohol limit and driving dangerously.

The alleged offence occurred in the early hours of January 28.

He was released on conditional bail.
