Dexter Blackstock sanctioned for betting offences

Tuesday 06 May 2014
Blackstock was also fined £60,000

Nottingham Forest’s Dexter Blackstock has been suspended from all football activity for three months after he admitted multiple breaches of FA Rule E8 for misconduct in relation to betting.

However, the Independent Regulatory Commission ordered that the player’s suspension be stayed until 31 May 2016 and will only be automatically invoked upon a proven breach of the FA Betting Rules during that period.  

Following the Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Blackstock was also fined £60,000.
