The 25-year old also received a 10 year restraining order after he got convicted for damaging property and inflicting grevious bodily harm.
According to the victim who wishes to remain anonymous:
“Reece repeatedly hit me.
“He hit me with an iron bar, broke my jaw and smashed a mirror over my head.
“It was when he picked up the second mirror that I thought I was going to die, I screamed for him to stop or he would kill me.
“He told me to get my arms down and take the beating like a real person.”
The footballer also threatened to make her run down the street naked, according to the victim.
