Football Association imposes stricter betting rules for next season

The Football Association announces stricter betting rules ahead of next season.

The Football Association has announced that players from the top eight tiers of English football will be banned from betting on all matches from next season.

Current rules only stop players from betting on games involving their own clubs.

However, the new measures were ratified by English football's governing body at their AGM on Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend, Newcastle United's Dan Gosling and Nottingham Forest's Dexter Blackstock are among the players to have been found guilty of betting breaches in recent months.
