FA brandishes 6 year ban to Lincoln City player

23 Apr 2018

Bradley WoodA fine of £3,725 along with a six-year ban was the outcome of Lincoln City's Bradley Wood going "all in" on 25 betting rule violations. The highlight of the accusations directed towards Wood were the two yellow cards he received in two separate 2016-2017 FA Cup matches. The case made against Bradley Wood found him guilty of giving away his intention of going for the yellow cards and informing 2 personal acquaintances, who placed atypical bets on the player getting cautioned.

The Football Association concluded  that Wood's plan was to deliberately receive a yellow card, and that the 2 bettors knew that beforehand, potentially revealing that information to third parties as well. The evidence was further substantiated by betting companies that looked into the betting history of the aforementioned punters and found no correlations between them and the bets placed on Wood getting cautioned. The overall amount of potential earnings came close to £10,000, a small part of which was eventually paid out.

Further information by the FA revealed that the 2 matches found a total of 7 people placing caution bets on Wood that didn't align with their previous betting preferences up to that point. The sheer sum of those bets raised particular suspicion as well. William Hill supported that view by announcing that the caution betting market has never seen 4 figure bets before. In response to the decision to have Wood suspended, Lincoln's CEO, Liam Scully announced his astonishment at the incident, emphasized the club's focus on integrity and posed himself and the club against any fixed betting acts.
