Bradley Wood: Ex-Lincoln City player banned for six years for match-fixing offences

Bradley Wood left Lincoln City at the end of the 2016-17 seasonDefender Bradley Wood has been banned for six years after twice intentionally getting booked during Lincoln City's FA Cup run last season.Wood, 26, was found guilty by a Football Association tribunal of two match-fixing offences after telling friends he would try to get booked in the victories over Ipswich and Burnley.The FA said seven people, including two close friends, bet on him to be booked.
The potential winnings totalled around £10,000 but not all were paid.Wood, who now plays for Alfreton Town, contested both charges but admitted 23 other betting offences.The FA Independent Regulatory Commission judgement said the fact that none of the seven had previously bet on bookings and the size of the bets made them stand out.Wood was given a five-year ban for the match-fixing offences and a further year after admitting 22 charges of betting on the outcome of matches and one charge of passing on information.He was fined £3,725, ordered to pay costs and has been suspended until 8 March, 2024.Lincoln City, who reached the FA Cup quarter-finals last season after wins over Ipswich and Burnley, said they were informed about the investigation in April 2017.Wood was suspended for the final two weeks of his contract and released in May.
