Moore fined for misconduct

Former Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore has been handed a one-month suspended ban and fined £2,000 by the Football Association for misconduct in relation to betting offences.

The 61-year-old found out his punishment during a personal hearing at Wembley on Thursday, which he was granted after last month admitting a charge for multiple breaches of the FA's betting rules.

Moore was sacked by Tranmere less than 24 hours after pleading guilty to that charge having initially been suspended by the club in February when the investigation first opened.

His one-month ban will now be suspended for two years.

Thompson appreciates fan support

Joe Thompson has thanked Tranmere fans for their support in his first public interview since being diagnosed with cancer.

All I can say is thank you very, very much, it's all appreciated and I really am grateful.

It's touching and it is helping. I'm going to have down days and I'd like to think there's going to be more ups and downs. But when I flick through my phone and go on Twitter it really is nice to see (all the messages of support).
