Gosling fined over betting breach

Salisbury Journal: Dan Gosling has been fined 30,000 Dan Gosling has been fined 30,000

Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling has been fined £30,000 and warned as to his future conduct after breaching football betting rules.

The 24-year-old was charged by the Football Association earlier this month and after admitting multiple offences, requested a personal hearing.

An FA statement said: "Newcastle United's Dan Gosling has been fined £30,000, subject to any appeal, and warned as to his future conduct following an independent regulatory commission hearing.

"Gosling, who requested a personal hearing, admitted multiple breaches of FA Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting."

Gosling's offences appear to be the result of a misunderstanding of the rules governing betting.

Rule E8(b) states a player "shall not bet, either directly or indirectly" on matches involving themselves or their team as well as the competition they play in or have played in.

The breaches in question do not relate to games involving Newcastle or Blackpool, where Gosling spent three months on loan earlier this season.

The former Everton player has made three appearances for the Magpies this season, all of them as a substitute, following his return from Bloomfield Road.
