A professional soccer player last seen playing for Bradford City A.F.C., a team England’s fourth-tier League Two, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to charges that included having sex with a 14-year-old girl, according to the BBC.

Tyrell Robinson reportedly admitted to a sex offense with the child in an appearance at Bradford Crown Court. The offense reportedly occurred in August 2018, and resulted in charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child and making and distributing an indecent image of a child via Snapchat.

Robinson also denied another charge of distributing an indecent photograph of a child in December 2017, and prosecution reportedly said it would drop that charge.

The 22-year-old was reportedly warned he could face jail time for the offense, and will be sentenced at a later date after making bail. He has already been ordered to sign the sex offenders registry.

Bradford City reportedly dropped the left-winger for gross misconduct after he was charged in February. Robinson had previously played for the Under-23 club of the Premier League’s Arsenal until his departure in 2017.
