Porter suspended from all football
George Porter joined Burnley from Leyton Orient for a tribunal set £90,000 fee in the summer of 2012 and was with us for a season and a half before his contract was terminated.
During that time he had loans with Colchester and AFC Wimbledon but didn’t play any competitive football at all for us and after leaving he signed for Rochdale before moving on to Dagenham & Redbridge, Welling and, three summers ago, Bromley for whom he has played 120 times.
Today, however, he has admitted a Football Association misconduct charge relating to 473 bets placed on matches since December 2011 and has been suspended from all football activities by the FA pending a hearing.
Confirming the charge, Bromley reported today: “The player has admitted the charge and a paper hearing has been requested. As a result, the player at present has been suspended from all football and football related activity by the Football Association.
“Until the written reasons from the hearing have been published, Bromley FC, George Porter and The FA are unable to release any further details relating to the charge at this stage.”Share this page :
