Toney charged with further 30 alleged betting breaches, taking total to 262

Ivan Toney has been charged with a further 30 alleged breaches of FA betting rules.

The Brentford forward had originally been charged over 232 alleged breaches of betting rules in November.

On Tuesday evening, an FA spokeperson said: "Ivan Toney has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA's Betting Rules.

"In addition to the previous charge, it is alleged that the Brentford FC forward breached FA Rule E8 a further 30 times between 14 March 2017 and 18 February 2019.

"Ivan Toney has until Wednesday 4 January 2023 to provide a response."

A statement from Brentford said: "The FA have informed Brentford FC that Ivan Toney has been charged in relation to additional alleged breaches of their betting rules.

Our private discussions with Ivan and his legal representatives on this matter continue. We will make no further comment at this stage."

Toney, who was not included in England's 26-man World Cup squad, had previously revealed he had been assisting the FA with its enquiries amid allegations he gambled on matches.

After a report in the Daily Mail claimed he had been the subject of an FA investigation, he tweeted on November 5: "I'm aware of a story about me in a national newspaper today.

"I have been assisting the Football Association with their enquiries and will not be making any comment until such investigation has reached its conclusion."
