Robert Heys banned from football for 21 months


The FA have banned Robert Heys from working in football for 21 months, following a hearing last week.

Heys was also fined £1,000 following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

A personal hearing was held last Thursday relating to charges made at the beginning of August, with Heys admitting to 735 breaches of the stringent FA betting regulations.

Heys issued a statement that read: "I accept that I broke the rules and that I must receive a punishment.

"However on consideration and following consultation with my representatives we do feel that a suspension period of 21 months is severe and inappropriately harsh.

"I fully intend to appeal against the excessiveness of the penalty in an effort to get it reduced so that I may work towards resuming my career within the football industry."

Heys is the latest in a recent succession of charges made by the FA relating too it's betting regulations.
