Heys has appeal rejected

Former Accrington managing director Robert Heys has lost his appeal to reduce the 21-month ban imposed on him by the Football Association for breaking betting regulations.

In August, Heys, who had been involved with Stanley for over a decade, was suspended for all football activity for nearly two years after he admitted to breaching 735 betting rules, including wagers placed on his own club to lose.

Heys resigned from his role at Accrington in the wake of the news and despite attending an appeal hearing to reduce his ban on October 8, his full punishment, which also included a £1,000 fine, was upheld.
