The English Football Association says Accrington Stanley managing director Robert Heys has been suspended from all football activity for 21 months after breaching its betting rules.

The third tier club's director has also been fined 1,000 pounds ($1,550) following a hearing at an independent regulatory commission.

In a statement on his website, Heys admitted to 735 breaches of the rules over a period of ten years.

The FA says Heys intends to appeal the decision.
