Wellington Phoenix protector Tim Payne has actually been fined A$700 after pleading guilty to a drink-driving offence in Australia.

The New Zealand international football gamer was sentenced at Manly Local Court on Monday, after he was stopped by cops while joy-riding on a golf cart on a public road in the early hours of March 24 when he was supposed to be in Covid-19 quarantine.

According to NSW Police, Payne went through a roadside breath test and was then required to Mona Vale Police Station where he presumably returned a 0.100 breath-alcohol reading.

He pleaded guilty to a mid-range drink-driving charge on June 10.

On Monday, Payne was ordered by the court to pay a A$700($7477) fine.

Previously this month, Payne was slapped with a four-game suspension from the FFA for breaching the National Standard procedure, as was back-up Phoenix goalkeeper Oliver Sail, who was in the passenger seat of the golf cart at the time. Cruise was not charged by the cops.

The Phoenix have actually considering that gone back to Australia, where they are currently in the midst of another 14- day stint in quarantine as they prepare for the resumption of the A-League season in mid-July.

The group’s next match protests leaders Sydney FC on July 17.

Their remaining 6 regular season video games will be played in Australia.

Although they will lack Payne for their next four rounds, the 26- year-old’s loss has actually been offset by the return of first-choice right-back Louis Fenton from a long-term shoulder injury.

Prior to leaving Wellington, Fenton declared himself totally fit and stated he was prepared to win back his beginning area.

“I want to play every video game and even if Tim was still available I believe I ‘d be trying to press him and attempting to get my area back in the beginning 11,” he said.
