Player banned for FA Cup pie-eating bet stunt

Player banned for FA Cup pie-eating bet stunt”

The goalkeeper was seen eating a pie during the latter stages of an FA Cup fixture against Arsenal at home.

The Sun had actually promoted the game with Shaw and were running a betting offer on whether the player would eat a pie during the game.

Once the story broke, Shaw was asked by the club to resign, despite his off-field work at the club.

Shaw sat before an independent panel at Wembley on Wednesday afternoon, where an independent heard his argument that it was just "banter". He was given a two-month ban and a small fine, the FA revealed.

The 45-year-old was hit with a two-month ban from all football activity and a £375 fine for his role in the incident.

"It was alleged the former Sutton United goalkeeper intentionally influenced a football betting market during The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Arsenal on Monday 20 February 2017, contrary to FA Rule E5 (a)", read a statement from the FA.

Shaw ate a pie on the substitutes' bench as Sutton lost out to the Gunners, and the charge of influencing betting markets, which Shaw denied, was found proven at an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.
