Archer was originally charged for punching a runner in the face at his son’s under-15s footy match back in 2017.

He plead guilty to the charge believing he would only get "a slap on the wrist".

However in November last year Archer decided to appeal the $2000 fine and $955 to replace the glasses of the victim which he was given.

Today Judge Mark Dean handed Archer a 12-month good behaviour bond and a $2000 fine to the Berry St Charity.
