Townsend banned and fined by FA

Tottenham Hotspur's Andros Townsend has been given a four-month ban from all football after breaching betting regulations. Townsend, 21, was charged by the Football Association for an alleged breach of rules regarding betting and misconduct last month. The winger, who spent the second half of the season on loan at QPR, has been fined £18,000 as a result while three months of his four-month ban have been suspended. A statement on the Football Association's website read: "At an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Tottenham Hotspur's Andros Townsend was suspended from all football and football activity for a period of four months, subject to any appeal, backdated to the 23 May 2013 when the player voluntarily withdrew from the England Under-21 squad. "However, three months of the suspension is suspended until 1 July 2016 and will be automatically invoked upon a proven breach of The FA Betting Rules during that period. "Townsend, who was also fined £18,000, was charged for breaches of FA Rule E8(b) for misconduct in relation to betting, which he admitted and requested a personal hearing." Townsend responded to the ban via his official Twitter account and confirmed he would not appeal the decision.
