"(I am) just gutted, absolutely gutted... It's all over, isn't it? My job - everything."Ashley Blake speaking after the guilty verdict.Judge Peter Carr told Blake: "You have been convicted of a serious offence which involved wounding a young man."The almost inevitable outcome for a case such as this is a prison sentence and I warn you that that is the most likely outcome."Speaking after the verdict, Blake said: "I can't believe it. There are no words to describe how I'm feeling right now."(I am) just gutted, absolutely gutted - and all because I did a favour for someone to host their party there. It's all over, isn't it? My job - everything."The jury heard Blake ran to fetch the pole from behind the bar after customer Steven Sproule punched 17-year-old Adam Finn in the face on January 25, leaving him unconscious on the ground.Mr Finn's friends became angry and upset following the attack. The court heard Mr Jones was trying to calm the situation when he was attacked by Blake.Blake told jurors he used the pole, normally used to secure the pub's door, as a "bat" to fend off bottles, ashtrays and broken-up furniture being hurled at him by a crowd of up to 30 people.But when initially quizzed in police interview, Blake had denied getting the pole at all.
