Football: Segers and Grobbelaar to learn their fate today

Click to follow
Bruce Grobbelaar and Hans Segers appeared before a Football Association disciplinary hearing yesterday charged with misconduct.

The pair, who were cleared earlier this year of match-fixing allegations, are charged with breaking the FA's rules on betting. During their trial, both admitted taking money from a Far East betting syndicate for forecasting match results. They will learn their fate at midday today.

Earl Barrett, the full-back who was Joe Royle's first signing when he took over at Everton three years ago, has been told he can leave. The 30-year-old has had talks with manager Howard Kendall, and his availability has been circulated to other clubs.

Crystal Palace are set to sell forward Carl Veart to Millwall and defender Gareth Davies to Reading. Veart's price has been set at pounds 100,000, while Davies is expected to depart for Elm Park for pounds 175,000. Neither has been able to command a first-team place this season.

Barnsley have decided not to take on the Estonian international defender, Marek Lemsalu following a week's trial.

Crewe's hopes of signing a defender on loan before the derby trip to Stoke on Saturday have been dealt a double blow. Southampton's Richard Dryden and Derby's Dean Yates have both turned down the chance to join the First Division strugglers.

Wolves will not appeal against the sending-off of Steve Sedgley following Tuesday's defeat at Portsmouth, during which the central defender was dismissed for violent conduct.
