FA charge 5 players with gambling

League Two in England has its Pete Rose equivalents.

Four players for Accrington and one from Bury each put money down on a 2-0 Bury win last year. Only two of the dudes played in the game, but each face sanctions and suspensions.
"All five are alleged to have placed bets on Bury to win this match," said an FA statement.
Well I would think so, if they were colluding to fix the game. It'd be hilarious if one guy was designed to place a false bet.

That might be too thought out...
