Dan Gosling fined £30,000 for breaching betting rules


The 24-year-old Newcastle and former Plymouth Argyle midfielder, who went to school in Brixham and played for Brixham United, admitted a misconduct charge following “multiple breaches” of the rules.

They do not relate to matches involving Newcastle or Blackpool, where he has been on loan this season.

Gosling’s breach relates to a rule which states that a player “shall not bet, either directly or indirectly” on matches involving themselves or their team – or a competition they play in or have played in.

In addition, players are prohibited from betting on “any other matter concerning or related to any club participating in any league competition that the participant is participating in or has participated in during that season”.

Gosling was a regular for Blackpool during his three-month stint at the Championship side but has only made three substitute appearances since returning to the Magpies at the start of January.
