Parramatta NRL star Corey Norman will have a conviction for drug offences struck from his record after a successful appeal.

The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited drug and possessing a prescribed restricted substance in Downing Centre Local Court in July.

A district court judge on Thursday upheld his appeal and set aside the convictions and orders of the magistrate, who had fined Norman $800.

Norman was caught with MDMA and Diazepam in his pocket at Sydney's The Star casino in May.

His friend, who is known to police, told security guards the drugs belonged to him but the player was charged anyway.
