FIVE Crewe United players have been banned for over a year by the Irish FA following an investigation into match fixing.
The players were charged with bringing the game into disrepute for bets placed on their Irish Cup tie against Warrenpoint Town in February.
Attempts were made to bet large sums on more than four goals being scored in the game, which Crewe lost 5-0.
The five players are suspended from all affiliated football until May 31, 2018.
The IFA's Disciplinary Committee also imposed fines of 400 on each player, whose names have not been released.
There is no suggestion that any other Crewe United player or official or anyone connected with Warrenpoint Town was involved in any wrongdoing.
