Brentford striker charged with further 30 alleged breaches of FA betting rules


Brentford striker Ivan Toney has been charged with 30 more breaches of betting rules, England’s Football Association (FA) said on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old was charged in November with misconduct, breaching the rules 232 times between 2017 and 2021.

“In addition to the previous charge, it is alleged that the Brentford FC forward breached FA Rule E8 a further 30 times between March 14, 2017 and Feb. 18, 2019,” the FA said in a statement.

Brentford said in a statement that private discussions with Toney and his legal representatives would continue but made no further comment.

Toney, who has scored 10 goals in 14 Premier League games this season, was not called up by England for the World Cup. The FA said Toney has until Jan. 4 to respond.
