Matlock Town’s experienced first-choice goalkeeper Jon Stewart has been banned by The FA following an investigation into a breach of FA Betting rule E8.

Stewart attended a hearing at Wembley on Friday with Matlock chief executive Keith Brown and Simon Barker from the PFA.

Stewart was suspended with immediate effect from all football-related activities for four months, with the final three months suspended for a period of two years from 21st December 2019.

Keith Brown explained: “This means that Jon won’t be able to play or train with the club for the next month up to and including 21 December 2019, which is a serious blow to both Jon and the club, but he can return to football activities on 22 December 2019.”
