Three AFC Hayes players have been suspended from all football activity for a total of three years and four months after they admitted multiple breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules.
The non-league club are the latest from England to be subject to investigations over breaches of rules regarding betting. Tottenham Hotspur's Andros Townsend was banned and fined earlier this year in a high-profile case.
A statement on the FA website read: "Lawrence Shennan was suspended for two years and fined £580.20, which includes the £330.20 net profit made from the bets. Ben Goode was suspended for one year and fined £606.42, which includes the £456.42 net profit made from the bets.
"Finally, Chevy Hart, who is no longer with the club, was suspended for four months and fined £145.65, which includes the £45.65 net profit made from the bets.
"The sanctions for Shennan and Goode have been set aside following a request for them to receive the written reasons before deciding whether to appeal."
