's Matty Cash was given a four-year football suspension and a deferred jail term. 

Roger Tweedle was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service after tossing a bottle of Lucozade onto the ground during a 1-0

Premier League

win for Villa at Goodison Park in January. 

Villa's players were celebrating Emi Buendia's opening goal, which turned out to be the match's lone goal when the incident happened in first-half injury time. 

Several items were hurled, including a bottle that struck Cash in the face but allowed him to continue playing.

announced promptly after the match that the fan had been identified and that Merseyside Police were investigating the incident. 

Tweedle was detained by police and subsequently stated in a statement that he was "not happy" that Villa players were rejoicing in front of the home crowd. 

The 19-year-old pleaded guilty to launching a missile into the playing area, as well as a common assault against Cash, at Sefton Magistrates' Court on Monday, and was convicted to eight weeks in prison, suspended for a year. 

He was also sentenced to pay a £200 fine, £85 in costs, and £128 to a victim assistance fund.
