Pie-eating goalkeeper to be investigated by Gambling Commission

Two investigations are launched after Sun Bets offered odds of 8-1 against the Sutton United Football Club reserve goalkeeper eating a pie on the bench.

Both the Gambling Commission and the Football Association are now investigating whether the incident broke any rules.

Nicknamed the 'Roly Poly Goalie' because of his 20 stone weight, 46 year old Wayne Shaw is employed by Sutton United as a reserve goalkeeper and as part of the coaching team.

He said: "A few of the lads said to me earlier on what is going on with the 8-1 about eating a pie later on? Sun Bets had me at 8-1 to eat a pie. I thought I would give them a bit of banter. All the subs were on and we were 2-0 down."

"I went and got it at half-time from the kitchen, I had it all prepared and ready to go. It was meat and potato. I think there were a few people (who backed it). Obviously we are not allowed to bet. I think a few of the mates and a few of the fans. It was just a bit of banter for them."

"It is something to make the occasion as well and you can look back and say it was part of it and we got our ticket money back."

To somewhat confuse matters, Wayne Shaw tweeted the following day that he didn't actually eat a pie on the bench, but it fact it was a pasty.

Gambling Commission enforcement and intelligence director Richard Watson said: "Integrity in sport is not a joke and we have opened an investigation to establish exactly what happened. As part of that we'll be looking into any irregularity in the betting market and establishing whether the operator has met its licence requirement to conduct its business with integrity."
