THREE nightclub bouncers accused of assaulting Saints star Sia Soliola are set to enter their pleas next month.

Christopher Rose, Lee Simpson and Keiran Waters are all set to plead guilty or not guilty before Liverpool Crown Court on November 19, following a preliminary hearing last week.

Rose, 33, of Hansby Drive, Speke, Simpson, 24, of Newarth Drive, Lymm, and Waters, 25, of St Chad’s Road, Chester, all stand accused of committing GBH.

Soliola, 28, suffered serious facial injuries in an incident outside the Imperial Bar on Ormskirk Street in the early hours of March 12.

Rose, Simpson and Waters have also been charged with a section 39 assault on Saints youngster Chris Forster.

A provisional trial date has been set for the week commencing March 18 next year.
