Football: FA wants statue for Ramsey and Moore
Friday 07 May 1999
Talks will take place with those planning the redevelopment of Wembley before a final decision is made. While Sir Alf's recent death has focused minds on a tribute, with members of the 1966 side calling for a permanent and fitting memorial, the FA has decided that the achievements of Moore should also be recognised.
David Davies, the FA's interim executive director, said: "We want to put criticisms that the game hasn't done enough [for them] in the past behind us."
Meanwhile, Walsall's Jason Brissett has been banned from receiving FA Cup final tickets for 20 years and fined pounds 500 after a ticket issued to him appeared on the black market. An FA investigation into ticket touting before last year's final discovered a pounds 60 ticket originally bought by Brissett when he was a Bournemouth player was later sold by a London company for pounds 550.
A FA disciplinary commission has fined three players and warned them about their future conduct. Queen's Park Rangers' Danny Maddix was fined pounds 750 and Reading's Chris Casper pounds 500 for both reaching 11 cautions. Chris Sparks of Nationwide Football Conference side Hayes. received a pounds 50 fine.
