Former goalkeeper for Sutton United, Wayne Shaw, has been banned by the Football Association for two months and fined £375 for betting offences.

An independent disciplinary hearing yesterday, September 6, found Shaw guilty after allegedly influencing betting markets in the FA Cup fifth round tie against eventual trophy winners Arsenal in February.

Shaw, 45, denied the charge after eating a pie on the subs bench during the 2-0 defeat.

An FA statement read: “Wayne Shaw has been fined £375 and immediately suspended from all football and all football-related activity for two months after he was charged in relation to a breach of FA Rules,” read an FA statement.

“It was alleged the former Sutton United goalkeeper intentionally influenced a football betting market during the FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Arsenal on Monday, February 20, 2017, contrary to FA Rule E5(a). The charge, which he denied, was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today.”

The shotstopper was sacked by Sutton United after the pie-eating saga.

One bookmaker accepted bets on whether Shaw would eat a pie on the live broadcast which he was later seen on camera doing.

According to Shaw, the incident was nothing more than "banter".

Since his dismissal from the U's, Shaw has been working as a commercial manager for non-league side AFC Totten.
