Everton striker Wayne Rooney's club fine, after being found guilty of drink-driving, will be used to benefit the local community.

Press Association Sport understands the former England captain's punishment of two weeks' wages (about £300,000) has been donated to the Toffees' own charity Everton in the Community.

Rooney was banned from driving for two years and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid community work after appearing at Stockport Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The Liverpool-born 31-year-old subsequently faced a formal disciplinary at the club at which it is understood the striker was apologetic and completely accepted the consequences of his actions.

Both the player and the club agreed on the financial penalty being channelled into a range of programmes provided by Everton in the Community (EITC), including in the areas of health and well-being, mental health, youth engagement and employment and education.

EITC is one of the UK's top sporting charities and considered one of the Premier League's leading community schemes, delivering over 40 programmes covering a range of social issues and supporting over 20,000 of the most vulnerable and underprivileged individuals across Merseyside each year.

Rooney rejoined his boyhood club this summer after spending 13 years at Manchester United, becoming the Red Devils' all-time record goalscorer during that time.
