Bristol City's Steve Brooker and Bradley Orr have apologised to the club and fans.
Bristol City pair Steve Brooker and Bradley Orr have issued public apologises after being released from jail on Thursday.
The duo served half of a 28-day sentence after pleading guilty for their part in a brawl that also involved Robins team-mate David Partridge outside Romeo Browns nightspot in Bristol city centre last October.
Wales international Partridge was handed a two-month sentence as part of the fall-out from the incident that has cast a negative shadow over the League One club.
After meeting with Ashton Gate chairman Steve Lansdown and vice chairman Keith Dawe, striker Brooker (pictured) spoke of his remorse at his prison sentence.
"I greatly regret what happened," Brooker told City's official website "While I think the sentence was harsh, I recognise that I let down the club and the supporters.
"It won't happen again. I'm very glad to be back and just want to get on with the job of winning promotion this season."
Orr was thankful for the support of the West Country club and his family through his fortnight spell in custody.
"I can't wait to put it all behind me," Orr said. "I let down the club and the fans.
"The best way to make up for it is for me to give 100 percent on the pitch and help the team achieve promotion.
"I want to thank the chairman and the manager for their support. And that also goes for my family.
"They have all helped me through a very difficult time."
