Former Premier League football player Neil Shipperley, who admitted flashing his private parts to a mother and her 16-year-old daughter, has avoided a jail term and stayed out of prison over Christmas.
The 45-year-old, who played for several clubs including Chelsea and Crystal Palace, showed his genitals and masturbated in front of the pair as he drove alongside them in west London in September, a court heard.
Prosecutor for CPS Shaan Sethi told Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court that Shipperley had wound his window down and stopped his van near them.
He said the woman and her daughter had turned to thank Shipperley for letting them cross the road, but then noticed that “he was holding his penis in his hand and staring directly at them”.
The court heard they walked away, but Shipperley carried on following them.
Mr Sethi said: “He continued to stare at the two women this time while masturbating” – adding that the pair tried to take a photo of his number plate.
“While the mother was on the phone to the police, they saw the defendant had parked himself between two buses further down the street, again staring at the two while masturbating.”
