Did Sutton goalkeeper break betting rules? Wayne Shaw explains pie-eating antics

Sutton United manager Paul Doswell has confirmed goalkeeper Wayne Shaw has resigned after his pie-eating antics during the club’s FA Cup fifth round defeat to Arsenal on Monday.

 

The 45-year-old reserve stopper hit the headlines after being caught on live television eating on the substitutes’ bench during the Gunners’ 2-0 victory at Gander Green Lane.

 

The Gambling Commission later confirmed they would be investigating the incident after Shaw admitted he was aware Sun Bets were offering odds of 8-1 that he would eat a pie “live on air”.

 

Shaw dismissed the incident simply as “banter” but has now offered to cancel his contract with Sutton as a result of the impending investigation.
